    Directions:

    1. 1
      1. Grind the garlic and bay leaves together in the work bowl of a hand blender or mini chopper. (Alternatively, chop the garlic by hand and finely crumble the bay leaves and combine.) Add the port, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, the vinegar, paprika, and salt and pulse until well combined.
    2. 2
      2. Pour the mixture over the chicken, cover, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
    3. 3
      3. Just before cooking, chop enough cilantro to make 1/2 cup. Scatter the cilantro on a serving plate.
    4. 4
      4. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high heat in a wok or large skillet. With a slotted spoon, scoop the chicken pieces out of the marinade and into the hot oil, arranging the chicken in a single layer and discarding the marinade. Cook until browned on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes, then stir-fry until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Scoop the chicken out of the pan, leaving any excess oil behind, and place the chicken on the cilantro.
    5. 5
      5. Add the onion to the oil in the hot pan, return it to medium-high heat, and cook, stirring, until the onion is browned at the edges, about 2 minutes. Scoop the onion out of the oil and strew it over the chicken.
    6. 6
      6. Serve the plate of chicken bites hot or at room temperature, sprinkled with a touch of salt and with cocktail picks or toothpicks for handling.

      Great ! Enjoyed the onion/paprika flavors, especially the kids. Overall flavors were excellent, and DS and I enjoyed the flavor of the marinade. Nice, simple, and very enjoyable. Served with some flavored mashed potatoes, and some broccoli florets. Made for a bonus tag in I Recommend.

      Oh, yum! This was just wonderful. The port gave it a tiny edge of sweetness without going overboard, and the onion and paprika just rounded out the flavors beautifully. The cilantro was a really nice touch- adding a fresh bite of flavor to a very rich piece of chicken. I loved how easy the marinade was to make. I may use this on whole chicken pieces in the future- with a longer marinating time, of course. I can't wait to have the leftovers tomorrow for lunch! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8
