To prepare this recipe:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
In a large, oven-proof casserole, saute the bacon over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, and set aside on a paper towel.
Add the pearl onions and mushrooms to the rendered bacon fat and cook for 5 - 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove and drain on a paper towel. Add the olive oil to the casserole.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and saute for 3 - 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove the chicken and set aside. Add the onions, garlic, shallots and tomato paste to the casserole and cook for 2 - 3 minutes.
Stir in the flour and cook for about 5 minutes to make a roux. Add the wine, stock, thyme, parsley and bring to a boil. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens.
Return the preserved pearl onions, mushrooms, bacon and chicken to the casserole, cover, and transfer to the oven. Braise for one hour, or until the chicken is tender.
