Number of Servings: 6


    * 8 slices bacon, cut crosswise into thin strips
    * 2 tablespoons olive oil
    * 6 quarter chicken pieces (legs and thighs)
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more for chicken
    * Freshly ground black pepper
    * 1 (1 pound) bag frozen pearl onions, thawed
    * 8 cloves garlic, smashed
    * 1 pound cremini mushrooms, halved
    * 3 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into large rounds (thirds)
    * 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
    * 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    * 4 sprig fresh thyme
    * 2 bay leaves
    * 2 1/2 cups full-bodied red wine
    * 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    * 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped
    * 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar


Cook the bacon over medium heat in olive oil in a large Dutch oven until crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Season the chicken pieces generously with the salt and pepper and brown the pieces in 2 batches in the bacon drippings. Set aside. Pour off about half of the pan drippings then add the onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook over medium-high heat until browned, about 8 minutes. Stir in the potatoes and carrots. Add the 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and the flour, stir to coat the vegetables.

Pour in the wine and chicken broth, stir until you don't see any lumps of flour. Add the chicken, thyme, bay leaves, and half of the bacon to the stew. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cover and braise until the chicken and vegetables are almost tender, about 40 minutes. Uncover and cook until sauce thickens, about 10 more minutes.

Stir in the parsley and vinegar. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve with the remaining bacon.
