About this recipe: Think of a French country-style meal and chances are your mind will conjure up the image of chicken simmering in robust red wine. This up-dated version of a classic bistro dish contains shallots, mushrooms and carrots, so the only accompaniment needed is potatoes – or some warmed seeded bread.
If you cannot find garlic-flavoured olive oil, use extra virgin olive oil and fry 1 garlic clove, crushed, with the mushrooms.
Cooked chicken breast with the skin has about six times more fat than without the skin. If you prefer, you can cook the chicken with the skin on to keep the moisture in and then remove the skin just before serving. Sprinkle a little paprika on top to add colour. * Red wine contains flavonoid compounds, which may protect against heart disease.
Excellent source of copper, niacin, vitamin A, vitamin B6. Good source of iron, potassium, selenium, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, zinc. Useful source of folate, vitamin E.

Good, but the flavors didn't come out as spectacular as I expected for something that has fresh herbs, bacon, and wine. It had good subtle flavors though and was an easy all-in-one meal to prepare. - 20 Jun 2011
