1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2 slices bacon, finely chopped 40 g
4 chicken legs, with back 1.2 kg
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 sprig rosemary, fresh, finely chopped 5 g
1 1/2 tbsp Parsley and Garlic Base 23 mL
1 1/2 tbsp tomato paste 28 g
1/3 cup white wine 85 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1/3 cup water 85 mL

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Heat the oil in a pan over high heat. Finely chop the bacon then add it to the pan. Sauté 2 min, then add the chicken legs and sauté thoroughly on each side until golden, about 10 min. Take the chicken out of the pan then set it aside
  2. Finely chop the onion, garlic, and rosemary, then add them to the pan. Cook 2-3 min over medium heat, taking care not to let them burn. Add the Parsley and Garlic Base and the tomato paste then cook 2-3 min over medium heat. Deglaze with the wine. Cook 2 min until the alcohol has evaporated. Put the chicken back into the pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour in about ½ cm of warm water, cover, and simmer over low heat until the meat is tender, 30-35 min.
  4. Serve on the warmed plates.

Very good recipe, the chicken was very tender and full of flavor. It was a little greasy so I would recommend draining the grease from the bacon and chicken before adding the veggies. Whole family liked it would definitely make again.

One of the BEST chicken dishes I've ever had!!!! The flavour of the sauce was absolutely to die for!! Followed the recipe exactly except for using dried rosemary instead of fresh, and ketchup instead of tomato paste. This would make a great dish to serve for a special event/company over...
