Ingredients

  • 3 sweet red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 whole chicken (about 3 lb/1.5 kg)
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 oz pancetta cubed
  • 3 oz cured ham cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Method

Broil red peppers, turning occasionally, until softened and charred, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool. Peel, seed and core. In food processor, purée peppers with tomato paste until smooth.

Meanwhile, cut chicken into 8 pieces, cutting breasts in half. Toss with paprika and salt. In Dutch oven, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, in batches, 8 minutes. Transfer to plate. Drain fat from pan and wipe out.

Add remaining oil to pan; sauté onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Add pancetta and hot pepper flakes; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Return chicken to pan.

Add tomatoes and bring to boil; stir in red pepper mixture. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat until thickened and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 20 minutes. Stir in parsley.
