    2 halved Chicken breasts (boneless/skinless), cubed
    2 tbsp olive oil
    4 strips premium bacon
    Flour for dusting chicken
    2 Cups Organic Low sodium/fat free chicken stock
    1 bottle Pinot Noir
    1 can Tomato Paste (6oz)
    3 Celery Stalks
    1 1/2 Cup Chopped carrots (or baby carrots)
    1 Medium Yellow Onion
    1 box frozen Pearl Onions
    4 Small Potatoes quartered or 2 large cubed
    2 Garlic Cloves

    Fresh Herbs:
    1 tbsp Sage
    1 tbsp Tyme
    1 tbsp Rosmary
    1 tbsp fresh parsley

    2 Whoe Bay leaves

Directions

Using either a dutch oven (preferred) or large pot, warm olive oil.
Chop bacon and add to oil--brown on medium high heat for about 10 minutes. Remove the cooked bacon and set aside. Keep the oil in the pan.

Season chicken with salt and pepper and then lightly dust in flour. Working in batches if necessary, brown the chicken on both sides in the reserved bacon oil and then remove and set aside.
Add onion, carrots, celery and garlic to the pan, gently cook on medium until onions begin to soften. Add chicken stock to the vegetables, add potatoes and fresh herbs. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Return browned chicken and bacon pieces to the pot. Add wine and frozen pearl onions and bring to light boil.

Reduce heat and add tomato paste.
Salt and Pepper to taste.

If using a dutch oven, move pot into a 200* oven to simmer for anywhere from 1 hour to 3...
On the stoptop, keep pot at a low simmer (I use lowest temp possible).

Seved with crusty french bread .
Enjoy!!
