  • Begin by dividing the chicken into 8 pieces and preheating the oven to 430F.
  • Heat a little olive oil and brown the chicken on both sides until crisp.
  • In the mean time, chop up the tomatoes, shallots and butter.
  • Place the tomatoes in the bottom of a dutch oven or lidded earthenware dish, followed by half of the shallots, half of the presunto, bruised garlic and bay leafs.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the dijon, port, brandy, white wine, and parsley and season with salt, pepper and paprika to taste.
  • Once the chicken is seared, place the pieces in a single layer in your dish, followed by the butter and the remaining shallots and presunto.
  • Pour the liquid mixture over everything, cover and place in the oven for 90 minutes, at which point the chicken should be cooked through.
  • Remove the lid from the dish and cook for another 15-30 minutes until the chicken skin is browned and the top layer of onions crisp.
  • Serve family style from the dish in which everything was cooked.
