Ingredients

    • One 3-pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 3/4 cup olive oil, divided
    • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
    • 1 cup chopped onion
    • 1 cup button mushrooms, washed and halved
    • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch wide strips
    • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch wide strips
    • 1/2 cup red wine
    • 3 cups tomato sauce, homemade or store-bought
    • 1 cup chicken stock
    • 1/2 bunch fresh basil, finely chopped

Preparation

1. In a bowl, season the flour with salt and pepper to taste. Lightly dredge the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour and shake off any excess.

2. Heat 1/2 cup of the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Sear the chicken on all sides until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Set aside.

3. In the same pan, heat the remaining olive oil and sauté the garlic and onions until light brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Add the mushrooms and peppers, and sauté for 5 minutes, or until soft. Deglaze with the red wine.

5. Add the tomato sauce and chicken stock and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add the chicken and cook for about 30 minutes, or until cooked. Add the basil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
