Spanish-Style Chicken Stew

“A thick, spicy and warming stew for the coldest of winter evenings.”

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 red onions, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 (28 ounce) can Italian plum tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 carrots, cut into chunks
  • 1 potato, cubed
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 4 ounces Spanish chorizo sausage, casing removed, sliced 1/4-inch thick (see note)

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in onions and garlic, cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent. Pour in tomatoes, garbanzo beans, and water; season with paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Stir in carrots and potatoes, then place chicken thighs skin-side up on top of the vegetables.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer until the chicken is tender, about 25 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Remove chicken from the stew and set aside. Stir in the chorizo slices, then pour the stew into a glass baking dish. Place the chicken thighs on top, skin-side up.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the stew has thickened and the chicken skin is crispy, about 15 minutes.
