Juicy chicken thighs are braised with Greek-inspired ingredients like Kalamata olives, capers and oregano. Old world flavor comes from our San Marzano Style Peeled Pear tomatoes - juicy with a soft and meaty texture and preserved using our Steam Sealed Flavor-Loc™ system for a fresh, vine ripened flavor you expect from Tuttorosso.

ingredients

8 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
2 onions, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
1 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and drained
2 tablespoons capers, drained
2 tablespoons fresh oregano, minced
2 bay leaves
1 cup red wine
1 (28 ounce) can Tuttorosso® San Marzano Style Peeled Pear Tomatoes, lightly crushed by hand
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • Heat a large pan with olive oil.  Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper.  Add the chicken to the pan, skin side down, without over-crowding; you may need to do this in batches.  Brown thighs for 6 minutes or until skin is golden brown.  Transfer chicken to a large baking dish.
  • To the pan add onions and garlic, cook for about 8 minutes.  Add paprika, pepper flakes, olives, capers, oregano, bay leaves, wine and San Marzano Style Tomatoes.  Bring to a boil.
  • Spread tomato mixture over the chicken and cover baking dish with aluminum foil.  Place in preheated oven and bake for 1 1/2 hours.  Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes.
  • Serve chicken with crumbled feta and chopped parsley.
