- Marinate the rooster into the wine for 24 hours.
- Remove the rooster from the marinade which we set aside. Dry the meat well by using paper towel.
- In a well-heated frying pan, add 2 tablespoons olive oil.
- Lightly flour the meat pieces and sauté them well, until golden from all sides.
- Sauté the meat pieces little by little, as you want them to make a nice crust. Remove and set aside.
- In a pot placed over high heat, add 3 tablespoons olive oil and sauté the bacon, onion, and garlic. After they are well sautéed, add the wine.
- The wine will froth a lot when added in, so leave it for 2-3 minutes, and if needed, skim some of the froth with a slotted spoon.
- Then, add the rooster pieces, chicken bouillon cubes, water, and boil them for 20 minutes.
- After 20 minutes, add the shallots.
- After 40 minutes, add the mushrooms and keep boiling.
- Lastly, after 60 minutes, remove the rooster from the pot, and in case the sauce needs to thicken more, let it simmer for a bit more.
- When the sauce thickens enough, remove from the heat, add 1 tablespoon butter and let it be incorporated.
- Add the rooster pieces and leave them inside so that they get more from the sauce’s taste.
- Lastly, if you want, serve with pasta.
