Go fancy and make this exquisite chicken coq au vin! It's a French recipe featuring braised chicken in a wine sauce - so good!
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Add the chopped bacon to an oven-proof skillet over medium high heat, and brown completely. Place onto a paper towel lined plate to drain.
Drain all but a tablespoon of the bacon drippings from the skillet.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides, and brown evenly on all sides. Remove, and set aside.
Place the onion into the skillet, and saute for a few minutes.
Stir in the garlic, and reduce the heat to medium.
Pour in the chicken broth and red cooking wine.
Mix in the tomato paste, bayleaf and thyme as well as salt and pepper to taste. Bring the mixture to a light boil.
Return the chicken and bacon to the skillet.
Cover and bake for 55 minutes.
Remove the cover, add the mushrooms and bake for another 15 minutes.
