Ingredients

  • 3 lbs chicken pieces skinned
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 jar (370 ml) roasted whole sweet red peppers
  • 3 oz prosciutto diced (about 2/3 cup/150 mL)
  • 3 oz ham diced (about 2/3 cup/150 mL)
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme (or 1 tsp/5 mL dried)
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 can tomatoes drained
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley

Method

In plastic bag, toss chicken with flour to coat. Discard remaining flour.

In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, about 10 minutes. Transfer to plate; pour off fat in pan.

Meanwhile, drain and thinly slice red peppers; set aside.

Add remaining oil to pan; reduce heat to medium. Add red peppers, prosciutto, onion, garlic, thyme, paprika, cayenne and salt ; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in wine and tomatoes, breaking up with spoon. Nestle chicken in sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, occasionally spooning sauce over chicken, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 20 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
