  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 6 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 pound tomatoes, diced

DIRECTIONS

2. Add onions and mushrooms and continue to saute until onions are translucent. Return chicken to skillet; sprinkle with parsley, basil, salt and pepper. Add wine and tomatoes.
