DIRECTIONS

  • In a Dutch oven (5-quart pot with a tight-fitting lid), warm oil over medium heat.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper, and cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add bell peppers, onion, and garlic to pot; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5-7 minutes.
  • If using whole tomatoes, gently crush tomatoes with your hands; add them to the pot along with their juice. If using canned crushed tomatoes, empty can into pot.
  • Add the pitted and quartered olives, the bay leaf, paprika, thyme, and water to the pot. Bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Return chicken to pot; reduce heat. Simmer, partially covered, until chicken is falling-apart tender, about 30-45 minutes.
  • Discard bay leaf, serve hot over cooked pasta or rice.
