- 4 chicken thighs
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 Tbsp berbere seasoning (or more if you want your mouth to catch fire)
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 medium red onion, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 Tbsp tomato paste
- 1/2 C red wine
- 2 small parsnips, chopped
- 3 small carrots, chopped
- 6 fingerling potatoes, chopped
- 1/2 C chicken stock
- Season the chicken thighs with salt, pepper, and 1 Tbsp of the Berbere spice. Melt the coconut oil over medium-high heat in a large, deep pan or dutch oven. Brown the chicken thighs on both sides (about 2 minutes each side) and then set them aside on a plate or platter.
- Add onion and garlic to the pan. Sauté until softened, about 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the remaining 3 Tbsp of Berbere spice and tomato paste. Sauté for 1 minute.
- Pour in the wine to deglaze the pan, making sure to scrap up anything stuck to the bottom of the pan.
- Then, add the browned chicken thighs back to the pan and scatter the vegetables around them.
- Carefully pour the chicken stock into the pan. Turn up the heat to high and bring the liquid in the pan to a boil.
- Immediately turn down the heat to low. Cover the pan and let simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is tender.
