Add peppers, garlic, onion and potatoes and sauté for 3-5 minutes until translucent. Add red wine and reduce by half. Add chicken stock, and both tomato products.
Add chicken back to pan and reduce heat to low so chicken is simmering. Cover with aluminum foil and simmer chicken for 20 minutes. Check chicken for doneness and cook longer if required.
