  1. Check 12 chicken thighs
  2. Check 1tablespoon kosher salt
  3. Check 1/2teaspoon black pepper
  4. Check 1tablespoon olive oil
  5. Check 4ounces pancetta or bacon, diced
  6. Check 10ounces pearl onions, peeled, or 1 large yellow onion, roughly chopped
  7. Check 1pound button mushrooms, stems removed and caps quartered
  8. Check 6 endives, ends trimmed and halved lengthwise
  9. Check 2cups Riesling wine


  1. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with the salt and pepper. 
  2. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat. Add the pancetta or bacon and fry until crisp. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Spoon off and discard all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings. Add some of the chicken to the pot, skin-side down, and brown on both sides. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining chicken. Add the onions and mushrooms to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms release their juices, about 5 minutes. Add the endives and wine, increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. 
  4. Nestle the chicken among the endives. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 40 minutes. Divide the chicken, endives, and sauce among individual plates and sprinkle with the reserved pancetta or bacon.
