Pollitos en Vino Rojo (Chickens in Red Wine)


POLLITOS en VINO ROJO (Chickens in Red Wine)
2 whole chicken (cut up)
olive oil
vinegar
onion
garlic
herbs (we used approx. 2 tbs. oregano (a lot), teaspoon basil, dash of paprika, and teaspoon of thyme). 
salt and pepper
bacon
tomatoes
spring onions
carrots
red wine

Cut chicken in pieces (if not already cut) and marinate for 24 hours in the oil, vinegar, sliced onion, whole garlic, herbs, salt and pepper.

Cut bacon in cubes, place on fire and in the fat cook the chopped tomatoes, spring onions and chopped carrots.  Cook 5 minutes, add the chicken and the strained marinade, then the wine.  Cook gently until chicken is tender.   Serves 4-6. 

(This makes enough sauce that you could add more chicken to it if you desire)
It shoooore wuz good!
