The main flavors in this one-pan dish—roasted red peppers, thyme, garlic, and sherry vinegar—are quintessentially Spanish. Sear the thighs on the stovetop to crisp the skin and then finish them in the oven to cook evenly.
This recipe is excerpted from Big Buy Cooking.
Add the chicken broth, red peppers, potato, and sherry vinegar to the pan, and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, return the chicken to the pan skin side up, and transfer to the oven.
Braise the chicken, uncovered, until the potato pieces are tender and the chicken is completely cooked through, about 30 minutes. Serve with the baguette for soaking up the broth.
Start the meal with a fresh Green Salad with Olives, Manchego & Romesco Sauce.

I added 1/2 cup diced extra-thick smoked bacon and cooked till nearly crisp before browning the chicken. I poured off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat and stirred in 1.5 teaspoons smoked paprika before adding the remaining ingredients. Used 2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes. Loved it with these modifications.
I agree with the other reviewer who stated that perhaps we are getting too used to the more spice-infused Indian and Thai dishes. This was good, I gave it a 3.5-4; husband said 3. I will make it again after reviewing some of the suggestions of cayenne and paprika. But Tony, I do continue to be a big fan of yours! Thank you!
This was very good. I added some Turkish red pepper paste and a little hot smoked paprika which I thought deepened the flavour. Next time I will pour out the excess chicken fat after browning to reduce the oiliness. Having said that though, the sauce was delicious sopped up with some crusty bread.
This recipe has become one of our favorites and is made every couple weeks, and for friends. I swapped the Russet potatoes for Yukon Golds; their smooth texture was more appealing to us and they seem to cook better, I found the Russets were always a little under cooked. I have also started generously sprinkling some Cayenne and Picante Pimenton on the chicken to get an added smoky, spiciness which tastes fantastic and seeps into the sauce, which also gives it an appealing, deep reddish coloring.
