Pugliese Chicken and Potatoes

My daughter in Venice

Another recipe found on cookingwithnonna.com. My BF made this one for me and I tried to replicate it this weekend. My version was not as good as his but my son said the chicken was cooked perfectly. I used boneless, skinless chicken breast instead of the bone-in chicken so I put the potato mixture in first and cooked the chicken with a little less time. The flavors of the herbs, olives, tomatoes, and wine are delicious. I will keep trying this one until I achieve perfection.

Igredients:

1 1/2 pounds skinless, bone-in chicken thighs and drumsticks

3 Idaho potatoes, cut into 2 inch pieces

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 cup Gaeta olives or mixed olives, pitted

4 cloves garlic

1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced

4 sprigs of fresh thyme

2 sprigs of fresh rosemary

2 TBS dried oregano

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup dry white wine

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Combine all ingredients except the wine into a bowl and mix. Pour into a 9X13 baking dish and pour wine over mixture.

Bake for 60-75 minutes until the meat pulls away from the bone.
