    chicken thighs and/or drumsticks, skinned (8 pieces)
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon 
    freshly ground black pepper
  • 2   tablespoons 
    olive oil
  • 4   
    small carrots, peeled and cut crosswise into thirds
  • 3   
    stalks celery, cut crosswise into quarters
  • 1   
    medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 8   
    cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4  cup 
    tomato paste
  • 1   cup 
    reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1   cup 
    dry red wine or cranberry juice
  • 2   tablespoons

    medium plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped

    snipped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 2   tablespoons 
    freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2   tablespoons 
    snipped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Spread flour in a shallow dish. Season chicken pieces with the salt and pepper. Dip chicken in the flour, turning to coat evenly and gently shaking off excess.
In a 5-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces; cook about 6 minutes or until browned, turning occasionally.
Remove chicken from Dutch oven; set aside. Drain off fat, reserving 2 tablespoons in the Dutch oven. Add carrots, celery, onion, and garlic. Cook about 5 minutes or just until onion is tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir in tomato paste. Add broth, wine, and vinegar; bring to boiling. Add tomatoes and thyme. Return chicken to Dutch oven. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 60 to 70 minutes or until chicken and vegetables are tender.
To serve, place chicken, vegetables, and cooking juices on a serving platter. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley.
