Flavorful chicken leg quarters are browned then simmered with onion, garlic, tomatoes, and Italian-style seasonings. This is a flavorful dish, perfect for an everyday meal.
Serve the chicken with hot cooked pasta or roasted potatoes and a salad.
4 chicken leg quarters
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, or vegetable oil
1 medium onion, quartered and sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 teaspoon dried basil, or about 1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a large skillet or saute pan, heat oil over medium heat.
When oil is hot but not smoking, add chicken and cook, turning, until browned on all sides. Add onion; cook until onion begins to brown.
Add garlic and cook for about 1 minute longer.
Add tomatoes, bell pepper, basil, and oregano. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 35 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juices run clear. Taste and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, as desired.
Note: To ensure the chicken is safely cooked to at least 165 F, test it with an instant-read food thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh, not touching bone.
