Ingredients

4 chicken pieces, free-range if possible

4 tbsp olive oil

60g (2oz) pancetta or bacon

12 fl oz dry white wine

400g (14oz) small onions

3 medium carrots

A bunch of fresh herbs, parsley, rosemary and sage, tied together

Salt and pepper

Method

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Heat half the oil in a flameproof casserole, add the pancetta or bacon and fry gently for a few minutes.

Add the chicken pieces and fry until browned, about 10 minutes. Add the wine and the bunch of herbs.

Cover and simmer over a very low heat for about 50 minutes. Meanwhile, peel and slice the onions and carrots into small chunks.

Heat the rest of the oil in a frying pan, and the onions, carrots and a little salt. Cover and fry gently for 20 minutes. Remove the chicken from the casserole and keep it warm.

Bring the cooking liquid to the boil and reduce by half.

Return the chicken to the casserole together with the carrots and onions, cook for about 5 minutes, then serve immediately.

Quantities are for four people
