  1. Mix salt, pepper& flour together.
  2. Wash chicken (taking off excess skin& roll in flour mixture).
  3. Put a little onion& a bit of the garlic& a few whole basil leaves in 3/4 the oil, then brown chicken on all sides in the oil.
  4. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels (May need to add more oil as you go along).
  5. Remove gristle from pan, leaving the oil; add the onion& half the garlic and stir until onion is just wilted, then add, zucchini& mushrooms- cook, stirring for a moment (not long, it will also be cooking in the oven).
  6. Place the browned chicken pieces into a large oven-proof casserole& pour the onion-veggie mixture over the chicken.
  7. In the same frying pan, add the rest (1/4 cup) of the oil& add the other half of the garlic, then add the crushed tomatoes, bay leaves, Italian spices, and wine.
  8. Simmer a few minutes.
  9. Pour over the chicken, cover and bake in a 350 degree oven about 45 minutes or until the chicken is done; then, uncover the chicken, top with chopped basil& parmesan and bake an additional 15-20 minutes to allow cheese to melt& sauce to thicken.
  10. Serve with white rice with a little of the sauce on top.
  11. Note: To reduce fat& calories, you can remove the skin from the chicken& omit the olive oil from the sauce.
  12. I prefer to remove the skin while eating- the basil& chesse form a kind of crust so you can still have that without the skin.
  13. Cooking with the skin on keeps the chicken moist.
