      Directions

      Season the chicken parts with Essence. Season the flour with Essence. Dredge the chicken in the seasoned flour, coating completely.

      In a large Dutch oven, over medium-high heat, add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and brown for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken and set aside. Add the onions. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to saute for 2 minutes. Stir in the wine, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and stock. Bring the mixture to a boil. Stir in the red pepper, bay leaf, thyme, and basil. Add the chicken back to the mixture. Reduce the heat to medium and cover. Simmer for 1 hour or until tender.

      Serve over pasta, garnished with cheese and parsley.

      Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
