1 large tomato—peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon tomato paste
1 cup 2-percent milk
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 parsley sprigs plus 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 375°. In an ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Cook over moderately high heat until browned all over, 8 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
Add the bacon to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the fat is rendered, 2 minutes. Drain off the fat. Add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and stir in the flour until incorporated. Add the onion and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until slightly softened, 3 minutes. Add the tomato and tomato paste and cook, stirring, until the tomato softens slightly, 5 minutes. Add the milk and broth and bring to a boil, stirring until slightly thickened, 3 minutes. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet; add the parsley sprigs.
Cover the chicken and braise in the oven for 20 minutes, until the meat is cooked through. Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a platter and discard the parsley sprigs.
Return the skillet to moderate heat and cook the gravy, whisking constantly, until smooth, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the chopped parsley, pour the gravy over the chicken legs and serve.

Review Body: I just made this exactly as written and thought it would be wonderful. It wasn't. Even with all the onion, garlic, and other ingredients, it was just bland. Definitely missing something. I sprinkled on a few red pepper flakes (helps everything), but I don't think I will make it again.
