- Add the onion mushroom mixture to the pot of chicken.
- Add browned potatoes, carrots, remainder of white wine, and stir in.
- Bring pot to heavy simmer and cook covered for about 1 hour.
- Stir occasionally to prevent sticking, as the meat will settle to the bottom.
- Add small amounts of water as necessary if you think it becomes too thick.
