    1 21/2 lb. broiler, cut up
    2 Tbls. oil
    1 Tbls. chopped onion
    1 Tbl. flour
    1/2 red wine
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    1 clove garlic crushed
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 teas. thyme
    12 small pearl onions ( I used frozen bag)
    1 cup mushrooms sliced
    4 slices french bread fried in butter

    In a large skillet, brown chicken in the oil with the chopped onion, garlic until browned. Stir in the flour until browned. Add wine, chicken broth, bay leaf,thyme, pearl onions, mushrooms. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until meat is tender. Garnish with slices of fried bread.
    serves 4- I always double this recipe and use the whole bag of pearl onions


    Its a good day to cook today being it snowed last night, and not much going on.

    Absolutely, thats exactly what I did when I did this recipe. I always cook big, then share with my senior neighbor, my mom, and I always have one of my kids stopping by. Let me know what you think after you make this. I am going to post another recipe this week for chicken adobo. Another one pot quick chicken recipe.
