  1. In a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot, cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pot and set aside.

  2. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. In the same pot with the bacon fat, brown the chicken pieces on all sides. Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside.

  3. Add the onions, carrots, and mushrooms to the pot and cook until softened. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.

  4. Return the bacon and chicken to the pot. Add the red wine, chicken broth, tomato paste, and a few sprigs of fresh thyme. Bring to a simmer.

  5. Cover the pot and cook over low heat for about 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.

  6. In a small bowl, mix the flour with a little water to make a slurry. Stir the slurry into the pot to thicken the sauce.

  7. Serve the coq au vin hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
