How to make it
- Put the onion, carrots, celery & garlic in a food processor & puree. You may need to add a bit at a time, transferring the finished product to a bowl. Add a bit of salt & pepper, set aside.
- In a large dutch oven or deep pan, heat olive oil. Pat chicken breasts dry with a paper towel and add to the pan. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Brown quickly, about 3 minutes on each side. Pour the soffritto mixture & half of the wine over chicken, bring to a simmer. Turn heat to medium and add the thyme & bay leaf. Cover and cook for about 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
- Remove the chicken and let rest (at least 5 minutes) on a cutting board. Stir the rest of the wine into the pan and let simmer for 5 more minutes. Remove the bay leaf & thyme.
- Cut the chicken into bite-sized strips against the grain, and stir back into the sauce. Serve hot over a bed of long-grain rice. Serve the rest of the wine with dinner :)
