    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.
