Farmer’s Style Bone-In Chicken Cacciatore

Slow Roasted Chicken Cacciatore with Potatoes and Carrots

Ingredients

1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoon dried rosemary, divided
2 lbs small new potatoes, quartered
2 cups baby carrots
1 Whole chicken, cut into 8 parts
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
All-purpose flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 medium yellow onion diced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 28-ounce can San Marzano tomatoes with liquid crushed
Fresh rosemary for garnish

For the roasted potatoes and carrots:
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, toss the potatoes and carrots with olive oil and the rosemary, then season generously with salt and pepper. Dump the potatoes and carrots onto a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the potatoes are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Stir frequently to stop them from sticking to the bottom of the sheet.

For the chicken:
Season the chicken pieces generously with salt and pepper, dredge with flour (tap off any excess) and then brown each piece in wide-bottomed dutch oven using a combination of vegetable oil and olive oil. Turn each piece to brown on all sides and do not crowd the pan. You’ll probably have to brown them in shifts. Once all of the chicken pieces are nice and golden brown, remove them to a plate, and sautĂ© the onions in the remaining fat in the dutch oven. After about five minutes or so, deglaze the pan with the white wine, and allow it to reduce by about a third. Add in the tomatoes with their liquid and the rosemary. Add salt and pepper to taste, then bring the sauce to a gentle boil. Tuck the chicken pieces into the sauce, cover, and cook for about 25-35 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Make sure that the chicken stays covered with the sauce. If necessary you can add a little water or chicken stock to bring up the level.

To serve:
Place a pile of the roasted vegetables on a plate. Top with 1-2 pieces of chicken, then spoon the sauce over the chicken. Garnish with sprigs of fresh rosemary.
