Basque Chicken Stew
 
1 large  broiler-fryer chicken (about 3 1/2 lbs.)
  salt and pepper
1 Tbsp  butter or margarine
2 Tbsp  olive oil or salad oil
1/4 lb.  canadian bacon, diced
1/4 lb.  mushrooms, sliced
1 medium  sized onion, chopped
2   green peppers, seeded
2 Tbsp  minced parsley
1   14 1/2 oz.) can pear shaped tomatoes
1/2 cup  dry white wine
4-1/2 cup  hot cooked rice
2   fresh tomatoes, peeled
3 Tbsp  water
4-1/2 tsp  cornstarch
 
wash chicken and pat dry; sprinkle lightly inside and out with salt and 
pepper. melt butter with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a dutch oven 
over 
medium heat. put in the whole chicken and saute until golden, turning the 
bird to brown as evenly as possible on all sides. remove to a platter; 
set 
aside. to the dutch oven, add the bacon, mushrooms, onion, 1 of the green 
peppers (chopped), and the parsley. cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 
minutes. drain liquid from canned tomatoes into pan; crush the tomatoes, 
then add them and the wine to the pan. return chicken to pan; cover. 
reduce heat and simmer until chicken is just done (leg moves easily when 
jiggled), about 35 minutes. while chicken is simmering, cook rice. cut 
fresh tomatoes in wedges and slice remaining pepper into 1/4 inch strips. 
when chicken is done, remove from pan and place on a bed of rice on the 
serving platter. cover with foil and set in a 200 degree oven. set pan 
with cooked vegetables and juices over medium heat. blend water with 
cornstarch until smooth and stir into juices until well combined. heat, 
stirring, until mixture boils and thickens. pour into serving bowl; keep 
warm. in a frying pan, heat the remaining tablespoon oil over medium high 
heat. add green pepper strips and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. add 
fresh 
tomatoes and cook, stirring gently, for an additional 2 minutes or until 
just heated through. remove chicken from oven; arrange pepper and tomatoes 
around base. serve immediately with sauce to pass. makes 4 servings.
