daube poulet   chicken in red wine 


  1. Cut chicken into bite sizes.

  2. Marinate the chicken for as long as possible (preferably overnight) in a covered dish, with half the chopped onions, half the crushed garlic, chopped parsley and medium dry sherry. Stir and mix at regular intervals.

  3. Place enough oil in a saucepan to fry chicken. Remove chicken pieces from marinade. Keep the marinade sauce. Heat oil and add chicken in batches. Fry until golden brown. Remove and keep warm.

  4. In same oil, fry remaining chopped onions and garlic for 30 secs. Add remaining ingredients except the red wine, crushed tomatoes and chicken pieces. Allow to simmer for one minute.

  5. Add the crushed tomatoes and marinade sauce. Allow to simmer for a few minutes until sauce thickens.

  6. Add chicken pieces, mix well with tomato sauce and allow to simmer until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Add red wine and simmer for five more minutes. Optional: (at this stage, you may also add canned button mushrooms or frozen green peas-simmer for long enough to incorporate added ingredients). Add some hot water if necessary so that sauce does not dry up or according to personal preferences.

  7. Remove from saucepan and serve with rice and achard de légumes.
