Diane's Hunter's Chicken

The secret ingredient is the cloves!


4 pounds chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch-size pieces
1/3 cup virgin olive oil
2 onions, sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic, minced
3 whole cloves


Place the chicken pieces, in batches, into a plastic bag with a couple of tablespoons of sifted flour. Shake to cover the pieces with flour. Pour virgin olive oil into a frying pan and saute the chicken until golden brown. In a separate frying pan, fry onions in butter with garlic, and cloves. When the chicken and the onions are ready, add the contents of both frying pans to a slow cooker. Then add the following:


1/3 cup tomato paste
1 cup sliced mushrooms
3/4 cup chicken stock
3/4 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons brandy or 1/3 cup Muscatel
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 bay leaf
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon sweet marjoram


Simmer in the slow cooker for 3 to 4 hours and serve over pasta or rice. –Diane Thompson and Dan Workman
