  • Saute onions and celery in a deep saute pan with olive oil and butter on medium high heat for 5 minutes. Add chicken drumsticks, increase heat to high and saute for another 5 minutes, until chicken starts to brown.
  • Add wine and bay leaves. Cook for 5 more minutes. Reduce heat to low, add tomato sauce, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir, cover with lid and cook for 45 minutes.
