Fry bacon in a casserole. Drain on paper towels. Dry Chicken thoroughly.
Brown in bacon fat. Season with salt and pepper. Return bacon to casserole.
Cover and cook slowly for 10 minutes. Turn once. Uncover and add cognac and

broth to cover chicken. Stir in tomato paste, garlic and herbs. Cover and
simmer for 25 to 30 minutes until tender. Remove chicken and skim off fat.
