Place the chicken in a bowl. Add salt and pepper. Mix well. Cover the bowl and marinate the chicken in the fridge for at least two hours.
Place the chicken in a resealable bag. Add the flour. Shake to coat each piece. Take the chicken out of the bag, shaking off excess flour.
Heat the butter and olive oil in a pan.
Brown the chicken pieces just until a light crust forms. If your pan is not so wide, you may need to do this in batches. Scoop out the chicken as they brown and move to a plate.
In the remaining oil, saute the onion, garlic, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme with a sprinkle of salt and pepper until softened and aromatic.
Pour in the apple cider and scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen bits stuck on it. Bring to a gentle boil.
Return the chicken pieces to the pan. Scatter the carrot and bell pepper wedges over them.
Cover the pan, lower the heat and cook the chicken for 30 to 40 minutes (depending on the size of the chicken pieces). Taste the sauce halfway through the cooking time and add more salt and pepper, if needed.
To serve, place three or four chicken pieces in a bowl. Ladle sauce around them. Add carrot and bell pepper wedges. Optionally, garnish with a sprig or two of rosemary and a bit of chopped parsley.
