   Basque Chicken submitted by Aaron Johnson
A wonderful fall or winter hot meal. Sure to satisfy the hungriest of appetites in your family.

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy Dutch oven over medium to high heat until fragrant. Lightly brown the chicken and then add the rest of the ingredients (for the chicken) to the pan. Place the pan over low to med. heat, cover tightly and cook at a quiet sizzle, stirring often, until the chicken is through and the peppers are soft, about 45 min. to 1 hr. Cooking on a low heat is the key to tender chicken.

Add the olive oil to a large saucepan over medium to high heat until fragrant and then add the rest of the sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium. Simmer stirring often, until the sauce has thickened, about 20 to 30 minutes. Season the chicken and the sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with rice, approximately 4 people.
