This is an unusual and delicious chicken dish, much loved by our family.
chicken, cut up , or just thighs and legs as you wish
small can tomato sauce
cups red wine
onion, halved and sliced
cups sliced mushrooms
crushed garlic cloves
tblsp rosemary, if fresh, 1 tblsp if dried
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large braising pan add enough olive oil to sauté onion and mushrooms. These need to get browned. Now add the chicken pieces to brown. Add the garlic and rosemary, salt and pepper. When Carmel colored add the wine and bring to boil for a few minutes. Now add the tomato sauce and let this braise for at least an hour. Covered. The trick is in getting enough color on the onions. I like to serve this with rice or poor man's spaghetti.
