Wonderful flavors blend together to create a sauce that is rich and savory with a bit of heat.

Once chicken is seared on all sides (but not cooked throughout), stir in garlic and tomato paste, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Stir in vinegar and stir vigorously until sauce is reduced to a thick glaze. Add broth, peppers, olives and chicken and continue cooking in oven for 20 minutes at 400°F, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Wonderful flavors blend together to create a smooth sauce that is rich and savory with a bit of heat.
Ingredients
  • 1 whole chicken, cut into 10 pieces (or just use breast meat if desired)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1½ Tbsp tomato paste
  • ⅓ cup sherry vinegar
  • 2 cups GF chicken broth
  • 6 roasted red bell peppers from jar, cut into strips - about ⅔ cup
  • ½ cup pimento stuffed green olives, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Italian parsley, chopped
Instructions
  1. Season chicken with salt and paprika. Heat oil in an oven proof skillet and sear chicken on all sides over med-high heat (only do a few pieces at a time, to many in the pan at one time will release too much moisture and you'll end up steaming instead of searing). Add more oil if needed. Transfer browned chicken to a plate.
  2. Stir in garlic and tomato paste, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Stir in vinegar and stir vigorously until sauce is reduced to a thick glaze. Add broth, peppers, olives and chicken and continue cooking in oven for 20 minutes at 400°F, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  3. Garnish with parsley and serve.
Notes
Instead of using the red bell peppers, try red jalapenos peppers from a jar for a spicier kick (these are not as hot as fresh ones)

      I would serve it with rice and a steamed veggie like green beans or broccoli. You don't want any rice or veggie with a lot of spice of flavor, since the chicken should be the star of the show (and it has a ton of flavor to go around!).
