  • 3 1/2 pounds chicken parts with bone and skin, fat trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 cups dry white wine
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons jarred capers, rinsed, drained and chopped
  • 4 plum tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 cups cooked white rice
Rinse chicken and pat dry; season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a heavy 5-quart pot over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Add chicken, in 2 batches, and cook, turning, until golden brown on all sides, about 8 minutes per batch. Transfer, as cooked, with tongs to a plate, leaving fat in pot. Add onion, garlic and cumin to pot; cook over moderate heat, stirring, until onion is softened, about 2 minutes. Add wine and simmer until reduced by one-third, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, juice, capers and tomatoes. Return chicken to pot and simmer, covered, until cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes. Stir in cilantro and butter; serve over rice.
