Recipe by Miraklegirl
READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • In a large glass bowl, combine chicken parts, orange juice, wine, zest, salt, paprika and pepper.
  • Allow it to marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Lift the chicken out of the marinade; pat it dry and reserve the chicken& marinade separately.
  • In a deep heavy skillet or shallow pan, large enough to hold the chicken in one layer, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  • Brown the chicken on all sides; transfer it to a plate.
  • In the same pan, cook the onions over low heat until they start to change color.
  • Pour in the marinade and simmer gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Return the chicken to the pan and simmer it, partially covered, basting the chicken with the pan juices and turning the pieces over very low heat for about 35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear when flesh is pierced with a sharp knife.
  • Transfer the chicken to a warm serving platter and keep it warm.
  • Skim off any excess fat.
  • Add olives to pan and boil rapidly over high heat until glossy and starting to thicken.
  • Pour them over the chicken and sprinkle with mint.
