Pollo Al Vino • Chicken in Wine Sauce
It's been a long time since I've made chicken this way. I don't know what's taken me so long seeing as it is sooooo good!
1 whole chicken quartered
2-3 cups worth of chopped onion
1 green bell pepper chopped
5-6 cloves garlic pressed
1 bay leaf
1 cup dry sherry
2 carrots cut in chunks
2 small red potaotes cut in chunks
12 pimento stuffed olives
Season your chicken quarters with salt, pepper and paprika. Heat a large pot drizzled with enough olive oil to coat the bottom. On medium heat saute the onions, green peppers and garlic. Add the chicken pieces ( I removed the skin from the chicken breasts) and let them brown a bit about 5 minutes on each side. (You may have to add more olive oil if they start to stick to the pot). Add the sherry, bay leaf and carrots. Cover and simmer on low for 45 minutes. Add your potatoes and adjust seasoning. Cover and simmer another 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Serve on a bed of white rice.
