The pairing of spices, dried fruit, and salty brined olives or capers with meat is distinctly Spanish—and is a favorite way to season ground meat in Cuba. A slow-cooked chicken stew seasoned up the same way is warming and really delicious if made a day ahead so the flavors bloom.

Instructions

  1. Mix flour, oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper in shallow dish. Dredge chicken in mixture, shaking off excess.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown chicken in batches; remove to plate. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil; add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low; stir in crushed tomatoes, olives, capers, raisins, and wine. Simmer about 10 minutes.

  3. Return chicken and any juices back to pan. Coat with sauce; cover pan and simmer about 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and tender.

  4. Serve chicken with sauce, sprinkled with cilantro.
