INGREDIENTS

·         4 chicken thighs
·         2 chicken breasts with skin and backbone, halved crosswise
·         2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
·         1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
·         1/2 cup all purpose flour, for dredging
·         3 tablespoons olive oil
·         1 large red bell pepper, chopped
·         1 onion, chopped
·         3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
·         3/4 cup dry white wine
·         1 ( 28-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
·         3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
·         3 tablespoons drained capers
·         1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
·         1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves





INSTRUCTIONS

1. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour to coat lightly.
2.   In a large heavy saute pan, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and saute just until brown, about 5 minutes per side. If all the chicken does not fit in the pan, saute it in 2 batches. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic to the same pan and saute over medium heat until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the wine and simmer until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juice, broth, capers and oregano. Return the chicken pieces to the pan and turn them to coat in the sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Continue simmering over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through, about 30 minutes for the breast pieces, and 20 minutes for the thighs.
3.   Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a platter. If necessary, boil the sauce until it thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Spoon off any excess fat from atop the sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken, then sprinkle with the basil and serve.
