1/2 cup wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
8 cloves garlic
1 lemon
1/4 fresh parsley (chopped)
1 sprig fresh rosemary

  2. Mince garlic and add to dutch oven with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Cook for 1 minute, until fragrant.
  3. Add wine and chicken broth to dutch oven. With a wooden spoon, work to pick up any chicken pieces that may have stuck to the bottom. Add fresh 1/4 cup of fresh parsley chopped and rosemary. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce to simmer.
  4. Return the chicken to the dutch oven. Cover the dutch oven and simmer on low for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
  5. Squeeze one lemon into the dutch oven to give a boost of flavor to the chicken.
