Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 ounces pancetta, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 (3 1/2 to 4 pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/2 cup Frascati or other dry white wine
  • 1 (16-ounce) can San Marzano tomatoes and their juices
  • 2 green bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
  • Salt and pepper
Directions

In a 12 to 14-inch saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pancetta and cook slowly to render out much of the fat. Remove all but 4 tablespoons of the fat-oil mixture from the pan and add the garlic and chicken, cooking until chicken begins to change color and garlic browns. Add the wine and cook 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and peppers, season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer, uncovered, 45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
