Steps

  • Rub the chicken with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside at room temperature for at least 1 hour or preferably in the refrigerator at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat.
  • Add the crushed garlic and cook, stirring, until softened but not colored, 2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken pieces and fry, turning as needed, until golden on both sides, 5 to 8 minutes. You want them nicely colored on the outside but not cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain briefly, and then arrange the pieces in a cazuela or baking dish large enough to hold them in a single layer.
  • Remove the crushed garlic from the oil and discard. Return the pan to low heat.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook briefly.
  • Add the thyme, bay leaves, sherry, and broth, raise the heat to high, and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat and pour over the chicken.
  • Bake the chicken until cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and discard the bay leaves and thyme. If the pan juices are thin, transfer to a small saucepan and cook over medium high heat until reduced, and then return to the cazuela. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve at once.
