This dish comes together quickly and looks like you spent hours preparing it. Ingredients: 4 1/2 tablespoons flour 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence 4 slices bacon (1/4 lb.), chopped 1 1/2 pounds boned, skinned chicken thighs 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 1/2 cups peeled baby carrots 3 stalks celery 1 medium onion 1 1/3 cups Chardonnay 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth 1/2 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley sprigs 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh tarragon sprigs Preparation 1. In a plastic bag, shake flour with 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, and the herbes de Provence; set aside. 2. In a 5- to 6-qt. pot over medium-high heat, brown bacon, stirring often, 6 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, cut chicken into 1-in. chunks, then shake half at a time in flour to coat. 3. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon from pan to paper towels. Brown half the chicken in bacon fat, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken, adding oil to pot. Meanwhile, halve carrots lengthwise and cut celery into diagonal slices. Chop onion. 4. Add vegetables to pot with remaining 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper and sauté until onion is golden, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, microwave wine and broth until steaming, about 3 minutes. 5. Add broth mixture, chicken, and bacon to pan, stirring to loosen browned bits. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, coarsely chop parsley and tarragon. Stir them into stew.

A favorite of mine. Worth the bit of work you need to create it!
@peppermintt, definitely farmers market carrots! :)
Those carrots look delicious all by themselves!
