My sister sent me this recipe from the website Goop.com, Gwenyth Paltrow’s website. I didn’t try it yet but it looks great for Pesach.
1 chicken, cut into 8 pieces
1 medium to large yellow onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 small cans whole peeled Italian tomatoes
½ cup chicken broth
1 cinnamon stick
freshly ground pepper
parsley to garnish
Wash and dry chicken. Season with salt, pepper and a light sprinkling of ground cinnamon on each side. Coat large pot with olive oil and place over high heat. When oil is hot, sear chicken pieces for 1 minute on each side, until the skins are browned. Remove chicken pieces from pan and set aside.
Lower heat to medium-high and add onions. Stir for a minute until soft, then add garlic. Let cook for another minute until translucent. Add cinnamon stick, tomatoes, broth and season with salt and pepper. Stir and bring to simmer. Add chicken pieces back into the pot, submerging into the liquid. Simmer for about 2 hours, until chicken is falling off the bone.
Garnish with parsley.
