Sicilian-Style Chicken Thighs
Mash garlic with 1/4 teaspoon salt with a fork to form a paste. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon oil, Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper.Advertisement
Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer the chicken to a plate and top with the garlic mixture.
Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the pan over medium heat. Add potatoes and carrots and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to brown and stick to the pan, 6 to 8 minutes. Add tomatoes, wine, olives and capers; cook, stirring and scraping up any browned bits, for 1 minute. Nestle the chicken into the pan, cover and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part without touching the bone registers 165 degrees F, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve garnished with parsley, if desired.
