  RECIPE TITLE "Chicken in Onion, Wine, and Caper Sauce (Poulet en capilotade)"
Recipe from Provencal Light Copyright © 2000 by Martha Rose Shulman

yields  Serves 4 to 6 time --- difficultyeasy

Capilotade, a lusty Provençal sauce containing lots of capers and onions, is wonderful with chicken. In this easy dish the sauce is made with white wine and chicken stock as opposed to the red wine and fish stock in the salt cod version on page 202. The dish makes a nicefamily dinner served with rice, wheatberries, pasta, or potatoes.


13-pound (1.35 kg) chicken, cut into pieces and skin removed
2quarts (2 l) water or enough to cover the chicken a bouquet garni made with a bay leaf, a few fresh thyme sprigs, and a few parsley sprigs
4black peppercorns
3medium-size onions, one quartered, the rest chopped
2medium-size carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
6garlic cloves, 4 peeled, 2 minced or put through a press
salt to taste
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 cup (125 ml) dry white wine
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon unbleached white flour
1/4 cup (60 ml) drained capers, rinsed
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried
1/2teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon crushed dried
freshly ground pepper to taste
3 tablespoons chopped parsley


Combine the chicken, water, bouquet garni, peppercorns, quartered onion, carrots, whole garlic cloves, and salt in a large soup pot or Dutch oven. Bring to a simmer and skim off any foam that rises. Reduce the heat, cover partially, and simmer until the chicken is cooked through—25 minutes for the white meat and 35 to 45 minutes for the dark meat. Remove the chicken and place in a bowl or serving dish. Strain the stock and reserve 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) for the sauce and the rest for another use.

Stir together the tomato paste, wine, and chicken stock in a bowl. Set aside. Heat the oil in a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-low heat and add the chopped onions. Cook, stirring, until they soften, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and continue to cook, stirring, until the garlic begins to color, about 30 to 60 seconds. Stir in the vinegar and flour and stir together for about 1 minute, until the mixture is just beginning to brown.

Add the wine mixture to the onions along with the capers, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until the sauce thickens slightly.

Stir the chicken back into the mixture, heat through, sprinkle with parsley, and serve.

Advance Preparation: This can be made hours ahead of serving and can also be held overnight in the refrigerator. Reheat in a 350 F (180 C) oven for 10 to 15 minutes or stir over medium-low heat in a flameproof casserole to reheat.

bookThe Most Decadent Diet Ever!: The cookbook that reveals the secrets to cooking your favorites in a healthier way
Devin Alexander, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Biggest Loser Cookbook, lets you have your cake and lose weight, too, with sinfully tempting — yet amazingly healthy — recipes for America’s all-time favorite foods.
Chef and former L.A. caterer Devin Alexander has maintained a fifty-five-pound weight loss for over sixteen years by transforming the dishes she and millions of other Americans love best into guilt-free (yet still outrageously mouth-watering) indulgences--Rigatoni with Meat Sauce, BBQ Bacon Cheeseburgers, Eggplant Parmesan, Sinless Yet Sinful Sticky Buns, and even Dark Chocolate Layer Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.
These simple-to-prepare recipes for the kind of delectable dishes people crave but feel they can’t eat when trying to be healthy and trim, actually can be the basis of a personal weight-loss plan. They can also be a way to add “off-limit” foods back into an already successful diet. Or they can simply be part of an exciting new way to eat healthfully — and with pleasure.
In The Most Decadent Diet Ever! Devin Alexander proves that even the most decadent dishes — Chipotle Chili with Blue Cheese Crumbles, "Fried" Jumbo Shrimp, Super-Stuffed Steak Soft Tacos, Fettu-Skinny Alfredo, Godiva Brownie Sundaes, and Chocolate Chip Pancakes — can lead to weight loss, good health, and carefree enjoyment.
