  • Summary

    Dark chicken meat is ideal for stews; it becomes more tender the longer and slower it cooks. To remove the thin top layer of the orange peel, use a vegetable peeler. Dredging the chicken in flour and then sauteing it seals in the juices, keeping it moist. The flour also helps to thicken the sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 8 chicken legs (6 to 8 ounces each), split and skin removed
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 large onion, finely chopped
    • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • 1 1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 1/3 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
    • 4 strips orange zest (1/2 by 2 inches)
    • Coarse salt
