Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1/8” strips.
  • 1 lb. chicken wings
  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs; cut in-half horizontally and trimmed.
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 onions, diced
  • 1 celery rib, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 5 cups unsalted chicken broth, divided
  • 1 1/8 cup dry white wine, divided into 1 cup and 1/8 cups
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1 tablespoons sections
  • 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 lb. small new red potatoes, washed & quartered
  • Garnish: 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Place oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Cook bacon in a Dutch oven, over medium-low heat, until bacon browns then transfer bacon to a large bowl. Turn heat to medium-high.
  3. In small batches, and without crowding the pan, sear the chicken wings and thighs in the bacon fat. If more fat is needed, add 2 tablespoons canola oil. Place seared chicken in the bowl with the bacon.
  4. Reduce heat to medium and place the carrots in the Dutch oven and cook carrots until softened. Add the diced onion and celery and cook until onion is translucent and celery has softened. Add minced garlic and cook 30 seconds until it is fragrant and bloomed.
  5. Increase heat to medium-high. Add 1-cup wine, 1-cup broth and Worcestershire Sauce. Scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pan and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid reduces to ¼ cup and vegetables start to sizzle, 12-15 minutes.
  6. Add butter and stir to melt. Sprinkle the vegetables with flour and stir.
  7. Gradually add the remaining 4 cups of broth, thyme and smoked paprika then whisk until smooth.
  8. Add quartered potatoes; bring to a low boil.
  9. Turn off heat. Taste the stew and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
  10. Transfer stew to the oven. Cook, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking.
  11. Transfer pot to stovetop and scrape fond off sides of pot with wooden spoon into the stew. Stir well. Add chicken thighs and wings and bacon.
  12. Return pot to oven and continue cooking, uncovered, 45 minutes or until chicken and vegetables are fork-tender. Stir occasionally.
  13. (At this point the stew can be refrigerated, covered, up to 2 days.)
  14. Before serving, discard wings (see *Note) and add 2-4 tablespoons white wine. Garnish with chopped parsley.
  15. Enjoy!
  16. *Note: The meat from the chicken wings can be placed in the stew or frozen for later use; chicken salad, chicken soups or quesadillas are a few possibilities.

Sounds yummy but a couple questions. Am I ever putting the bacon back into the stew? And can I use boneless chicken breasts?
    Becky Hardin
    You can for sure use boneless chicken. And I'm so sorry about the bacon! You add it back in with the chicken. I've updated the recipe. Thanks so much!
      Laura
      I've got a question related to this one too: is it safe to leave the partially cooked chicken out for a half hour? How do you store the seared chicken while the stew is initially in the oven? Can you just keep the chicken in the stew the whole time?
Laura
This looks so good! This is the kind of recipe I could make on a Sunday and eat it all week without getting tired of it.
Susie Genova
This looks so comforting and delicious. Thank you, Becky!
cakespy
DANG this looks good. Why can't it be spring already? Well, I guess it's ok as long as I have a cozy stew like this.
Suz
Quick question, in the list of ingredients it has fresh thyme and smoked paprika listed twice. Where does the second batch get placed in the order? Thanx
    Becky Hardin
    Whoops! Just a typo. I've corrected it. Thanks for letting me know!!
Antoinette
This is DEFINITELY going on the table tonight! I looks amazing, and simple as well. Just curious, where did you get those beautiful bowls? I love the color, and simple texture at the top.
Eleanor
Can't wait to give this one a try! I'd also love to know where you got these beautiful bowls!
Lindsey
This may be the best stew I have ever made! I used rice flour to make it gluten free and turnips instead of potatoes to make it low carb (and because I am allergic to potatoes). It has an incredible flavor. I loved the technique of browning the chicken first because my chicken always gets stringy and falls apart in soups. It was more work than just throwing everything in a pot, but definitely worth all the steps involved. This recipe is going in my binder and will be enjoyed often.
Christyn
Looks incredible! Could I use a crockpot in place of a dutch oven? If so, how long would you suggest?
Rosslynn
Can I cook this on just the stove top without putting it into the oven? I don't have oven proof dutch oven. I hope I get a response before 2/28 since I am hoping to cook this on 2/28.Thank you
