This is a recipe from the region where I'm from in Brazil. It is good to eat on Sundays. In Portuguese it's called frango com caldinho.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk vinegar, garlic, and paprika together in a large bowl. Add chicken and turn to coat. Let marinate in the refrigerate, at least 1 hour.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions; cook and stir until golden, about 5 minutes. Add chicken, discarding marinade; cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side.

  • Stir tomatoes, bay leaves, and salt into the skillet. Add a little water to prevent sticking. Reduce heat to medium and cook, adding water to thin sauce as needed, until chicken is tender, about 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute lemon juice for the vinegar if desired. The longer you marinate the chicken, the better.

Editor's Note:

I made this in my pressure cooker which has a sauté setting. I used chicken quarters instead and a few garden fresh tomatoes along with a can of diced tomatoes. I initially under seasoned this but that was easily fixed. If you use a pressure cooker to make this be sure to place the chicken on the bottom and layer tomato sauce on top otherwise the sugars in the tomato sauce will burn. My pressure has a feature that automatically turns pressure setting off if this happens. The chicken was so tender that I decided to remove chicken from the bone and will serve with tomato sauce over couscous for dinner. I find my kids don't waste as much chicken if I debone it. I kept picking bites of it which is a sign of a good recipe to me! Reminds me of a chicken tagine and I'll serve it with a side of steamed carrots. Read More

I made this for dinner last night. Naturally I hacked it beyond recognition by using apple cider vinegar boneless\skinless chicken thighs and maybe half of the onion specified. It was still delicious served over basmati rice. Read More

Although this recipe is tasty I would like to try grilling the chicken on the BBQ after the marinating process, and applying a glaze to the chicken. Maybe next time. Read More
