  1. Prepare ingredients as instructed.
  2. Heat a saute pan to a high heat with olive oil, rub the chicken with sea salt and fry on all sides until browned, remove from the pan and drain the excess oil.
  3. Transfer the chicken to a pot. In the saute pan used to brown the chicken add the mushrooms, garlic, pancetta and onion. Fry for 2 minutes and transfer to the pot with the chicken.
  4. Place the pot on a medium heat and add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  5. Once boiling reduce the heat to a very low simmer and allow to simmer for 35-40 minutes.
