This is a makeover of a Rachel Ray recipe made without chorizo. Very yummy with a great combination of flavors. This is a makeover of a Rachel Ray recipe made without chorizo. Very yummy with a great combination of flavors.
Number of Servings: 8


    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
    8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (2 pounds)
    Salt and pepper
    1 red mild frying or bell pepper, chopped
    2-3 small ribs celery with leafy tops, chopped
    1 onion, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    1 jalapeņo or Fresno chili pepper, thinly sliced
    1/4 cup dry sherry or white wine
    1 can diced or crushed tomatoes (15 ounces)
    1 1/2 cups chicken stock
    1/2 cup flat leaf parsley
    1/4 cup sliced pimiento-stuffed olives


To cut down on sodium, use low sodium tomatoes and broth and omit olives.


In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the EVOO over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper; add to the skillet and cook, turning once, until browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Add the bell pepper, celery, onion, garlic and jalepeno pepper. Cover partially and cook until the vegetables are just softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the sherry and cook, stirring up any browned bits.

Add the tomatoes, stock and chicken to the pan. Partially cover and simmer until cooked through, 15 minutes. Stir in the parsley and olives. Serve over brown rice (rice not included in nutrition information).

  • Love this recipe! If you only have white wine on hand, thats OK, but sherry really knocks it out of the park. - 11/29/15
