Ingredients

  • 1 (3-pound) chicken
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Spanish olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 6 Italian Roma tomatoes, cored, seeded, and chopped (or use canned)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 bunch Italian parsley, leaves only, roughly chopped, for garnish

Method

Step 1

Rinse the chicken, remove any excess fat, and pat dry with paper towels. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, paprika, 2 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons pepper, and the vinegar. Rub the vinegar mixture all over the chicken, including the cavity. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate at room temperature 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Shake the chicken to drain the excess vinegar. Using kitchen tongs and a large wooden spoon to steady the bird, brown it on all sides in the hot oil. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Step 2

Melt the butter in the skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the onions, with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add the water and set the chicken on top of the vegetables. Roast 1 hour, until the leg moves easily when twisted. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Tip the casserole to one side and spoon off the excess fat. Carve the chicken into serving pieces, and arrange on a platter with the vegetables and juices from the pan. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
