A Story by Michele Kreinheder | Updated 12/9/2018 8:22pm


INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon olive oil

8 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (about 3 lb.)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 15-oz. cans chickpeas, rinsed

dried red Chinese peppers

½ cup low-sodium chicken broth

¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

steamed spinach

Lemon wedges, for serving

RECIPE PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 425°. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Working in 2 batches, cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side; transfer to a plate.

Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from pan. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring, until beginning to darken, about 1 minute. Add chickpeas, Chinese dried pepper(s) , and broth; bring to a simmer.

Nestle chicken, skin side up, in chickpeas; transfer skillet to oven. Roast until chicken is cooked through, 20–25 minutes.

Microwave spinach to stream. Spoon chicken dish over steamed spinach, top with parsley and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.
