2 tablespoons cooking oil
4 Chicken thighs
4 chicken drumsticks
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup apple cider
1 1/2 cups canned low sodium chicken broth
1 onion, cut into thin slices
1 pound parsnips, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Season the chicken thighs and drumsticks with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper. Cook the chicken until browned, turning, about 8 minutes in all. Remove. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat from the pot.

Reduce the heat to moderate and stir in the flour. Whisk in the cider and the broth and bring to a simmer, scraping the bottom of the pot to dislodge any brown bits. Add the onion, parsnips, carrots, thyme, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes.

Return the chicken to the pot. Bring the stew back to a simmer, cover, and put in the preheated oven until the chicken is done and the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.

Wine Recommendation: A “comfort” wine will make this dish even more satisfying. A rustic red from the south of France, such as a Cahors or Minervois, is a good possibility.

Peanut butter and okra flavor and thicken this tasty African stew. You can substitute green beans for the okra, if you like; the consistency of the sauce won’t be quite the same, but it will still be thick enough to cling to the chicken.

Tortilla Soup

From south of the border comes this spicy and hearty soup ladled over crisp tortilla strips and grated cheddar. The soup is chunky with chicken and avocado, but it’s the tortillas that give it a slight thickness and a special flavor.
