Coq au Riesling


8 ounces of sliced bacon, sliced crosswise into 1-inch pieces

3 medium onions, peeled and roughly chopped

10 chicken thighs, with skin and bone

8 ounces of button mushrooms, halved

2 or 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

¼ cup chopped Italian parsley

3 tablespoons of chopped tarragon

1 bottle of dry or off-dry Riesling wine (750 ml)



Step 1) Place large flameproof casserole or other heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until most of the fat has been rendered. Add onions and sauté until softened, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer mixture to plate, leaving behind as much liquid fat as possible.

Step 2) Place pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches (do not overcrowd pan),you should brown chicken pieces on both sides, transferring them to a plate after they are browned.
