Steps

1
Done

First of all, preheat the oven to 300⁰ F. Then, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil with 2 tablespoons of butter in a large Dutch oven.

2
Done

Once the oil-butter heats up add the pancetta and cook for about 8-10 minutes on a medium flame until it turns light brown in colour. Transfer the pancetta to a plate with a slotted spoon.

3
Done

Meanwhile, place the chicken on paper towels and pat dry. Add salt and pepper to taste on both sides for seasoning the chicken.

4
Done

Next, brown the chicken in batches in a single layer until it turns crispy and golden brown. Turn over the chicken pieces from time to time to avoid sticking. Transfer the chicken to the plate of pancetta and continue to repeat the process for other remaining chicken pieces.

5
Done

After that, add the diced carrots and onions to the Dutch oven and shallow fry it over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the onion becomes translucent. To this, add the mushroom and 6 smashed garlic cloves and again cook for about 1 minute.

6
Done

Next, add ½ a bottle of wine to deglaze all the crispy brown bits stuck to the bottom of the Dutch oven.

7
Done

After that, add the cooked bacon (pancetta) back into the Dutch oven, stir thoroughly and cook it for a couple of minutes. After a few minutes, once it starts bubbling up, add the browned chicken into the dish.

8
Done

Then add the chicken stock, thyme, pancetta and any remaining juices that collected on the plate into the pot. Add salt and pepper for seasoning and bring to a simmer. Cover the pot with a lid and place in the oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

9
Done

Turn the oven up to 450 degrees, remove the lid and cook for another 20 minutes to crisp the chicken. Once the chicken is cooked, remove only the chicken to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.

Done

For a thicker consistency, you may add another tablespoon of butter-flour paste. Taste and add salt for seasoning if required. Add the vegetables and sauce to the chicken on the platter and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
