DIRECTIONS

  • Brown the chicken pieces quickly with the whole onions in very hot oil in flameproof casserole.
  • (My cast iron dutch oven works well) Remove the chicken and add the sliced onions, green pepper and garlic to the pan, soften over lowered heat for 5 minutes.
  • Return the chicken to the pan, add the tomatoes, herbs, saffron or turmeric, tomato paste and wine or stock.
  • Taste, season and cover.
  • Cook gently, stove top, until chicken is done, or.
  • Place dutch oven in preheated oven at 350°F for about 55 minutes until chicken is done.
  • Halfway through cooking turn the chicken pieces and stir the pan contents.
  • The chicken should be lightly sauced, not stewed.
  • If the sauce is very thin, cook uncovered for the rest of the cooking time.
  • Add the olives and anchovy fillets, if using, for about the last 10 minutes of cooking time.
  • Check seasoning and serve with rice and a tossed green salad.
