DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Clean chicken, rinse with cold water and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. Heat 1/3-cup olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, carefully place chicken in pan using tongs. Brown well on all sides, remove chicken from pan. Pour off all but a few tablespoons of oil. Return chicken to skillet and place uncovered in preheated oven for 25 minutes, turning chicken once or twice.
  • Heat 2 cups of canola oil to 350 degrees F.
  • While chicken is cooking have potatoes peeled, wedged, rinsed and dry. Carefully add wedges into hot oil, about 4 at a time. Avoid crowding. Fry potatoes until golden and remove and let drain on paper towel and reserve for later.
  • For the last 5 minutes of cooking for the chicken, add the cooked potatoes, garlic, oregano and wine to skillet, return to oven.
  • Remove skillet from oven to stove top after the 5 minutes, add parsley and gently turn with a spoon.
  • Remove chicken to a large platter, arrange potatoes atop the chicken and pour the pan juices over all.
