How to make it

  • Heat the oil and half of the butter in a large saucepan and add the bacon and thyme.
  • Roll the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour. Add them to the pan. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side, until the chicken is golden.
  • Rub the garlic cloves between your hands to break the skin, then add them to the pan
  • Add the shallot and onion.
  • Pour in the wine and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Simmer for 40 minutes to an hour, until the chicken starts to fall off the bone.
  • Carefully remove the chicken, bacon and vegetables with a strainer and transfer them to a serving dish. Return the juices to the heat.
  • Knead the flour into the remaining butter and add this to the pan, a little at a time, until fully incorporated. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens. Pour over the chicken and serve with boiled or mashed potatoes and good bread.
