About this Recipe

Classic Spanish inspired chicken cooked with pimento peppers for a sweet and fiery taste!


1 Maple Leaf® Prime® Naturally Whole Chicken, cut into 8 pieces
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp (5 mL) Salt
Pinch pepper
2 tbsp (30 mL) Olive oil
1 Large onion, chopped
2 (4 oz/113 g) Jars pimento peppers
1 cup (250 mL) Dry white wine


RUB chicken all over with garlic, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.

HEAT oil over medium-high heat in a pot large enough to hold chicken in one layer for final cooking. Working in batches, add chicken and cook 5-6 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove from pot and set aside.

ADD onions to same pot and cook, stirring occasionally for 9-10 minutes or until soft. Add pimentos and wine. Return chicken to the pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low, partially cover and simmer gently for 45 minutes to an hour or until chicken is very tender and a minimum internal temperature of 185°F (85°C) has been reached. Adjust seasoning to taste.


Serve with roasted potatoes or French fries
