DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the chicken pieces, pat dry with paper towels, and season with salt, pepper and oregano.
  • In an oven-proof skillet large enough to hold the chicken pieces without crowding, heat the olive oil over medium heat until fragrant.
  • Brown the chicken pieces on both sides.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside.
  • Reduce the heat to low, add the garlic and onions, and cook, stirring, until tender, 6-8 minutes, adding more oil if necessary.
  • Add the bay leaf, wine, rum and olives and stir to incorporate.
  • Return the chicken to the pan, cover, and cook over low heat until tender, about 45 to 60 minutes OR, if you prefer, place the covered skillet in a 350F oven for 45 minutes.
  • Remove the bay leaf and serve.
  • Delicious with white or yellow rice.
