1/4 cup EVOO

2 carrots, chopped

1 onion, chopped

2 to 3 ribs celery, chopped with leafy tops

3 to 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

About 3 tablespoons rosemary, chopped

6 small pieces bone-in, skin-on chicken breast

Salt and pepper

1 cup dry red or white wine

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 cup chicken stock

Crusty bread


  1. In a pot, combine EVOO with the carrots, onion, celery, garlic and lemon zest and juice. Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides, turn in the vegetables and oil and cover. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Return to room temp.
  3. Place a pot over medium-high heat and brown the chicken 15 to 20 minutes. Add the wine and reduce for a few minutes.

Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer 20 to 30 minutes more to cook through. Cool and store.
