Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 160C. Heat fat in a large casserole or large, deep frying pan over medium heat, add onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until translucent (7-9 minutes). Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds, then transfer to a bowl. Return pan to heat, add chicken and cook over medium-high heat until golden, turning once (3 minutes each side). Deglaze with wine (3-4 minutes), then add tomatoes, olives, bay leaf, rosemary and parsley and season to taste. Cover and braise in oven, adding stock as pan juices evaporate and turning the chicken occasionally until cooked (1 hour), then stir in apple cider and keep warm.
