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.

  • 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.
