Cook Time: 2 HRs
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a Dutch oven on medium high, heat the olive oil. If you are starting with a whole chicken, break the chicken into pieces.
Sear chicken pieces skin down over medium high heat until dark brown pieces stick to the bottom of the pan. Remove the chicken and set aside on a plate.
Bring the heat down to medium, add the onions, garlic, butter, sugar and bacon. Sauté, scrapping the bottom of the pan with a spoon to get all the flavorful bits of chicken into the mixture.
Set chicken pieces back in the Dutch oven on top of the vegetable garnish. Cook in oven, uncovered for two hours.
