  • Reduce heat and allow to cook liver thoroughly and release juices. Stir often
  • Meanwhile add cream, tomatoe paste, crushed tomatoes and spices to chicken stock and stir well.
  • Once onions are translucent and most of wine has boiled off, remove the liver and snack on it.
  • 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.
  • This can simmer gently all day, just add water as needed to maintain consistency.
  • Serve hot in large bowls with thick slices of crusty bread and a glass of wine or ale.

    It should be dry sturdy white wine, but I guess a sweet one would work, though I'd recommend against it.

    The addition of the cream to the tomato "base" is just wonderful, john! It's funny.. my favorite pasta sauce is vodka cream sauce which this reminds me of just a little. Can't wait to try this and there is actually chicken stock in the works at our house today! Thanks so much, john. You got my five...
