Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Add olive oil to a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Pat chicken thighs dry and season with salt and pepper. Add chicken skin-side-down, and brown, about 3-4 minutes. Turn over and repeat.
  2. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside. Add garlic and onions and cook for 7-10 minutes, or until softened. Return chicken and any accumulated juices back to the pot.
  3. Meanwhile add drained tomatoes, wine, brown sugar, vinegar and Italian seasoning to a blender. Pulse until combined but still chunky.
  4. Pour mixture over chicken and bring to a boil. Cover and transfer to oven for 45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 170°F at the thickest part.
