Ingredients

  • 1

    Chicken (2 1/2 - 3 pounds, cut into 8 serving pieces)

  • 1

    Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

  • 2

    Teaspoon Kosher Salt

  • 1

    Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper

  • 5

    Clove Garlic

  • 2

    Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 4

    Cups Yellow Onions (Coarsely chopped)

  • 1/2

    Cup Dry White Wine

  • 2

    Cup Water

  • 1/2

    Cup Myzithra Cheese (Grated)(or freshly grated Romano cheese)

  • 1

    Can Tomato Paste (6-ounces)

Directions

Pat the chicken pieces dry with paper towels so they don't spatter in the pan. Mix the cinnamon, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl and rub the chicken pieces on all sides with the mixture. Mince 3 of the garlic cloves and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a large, deep, nonaluminum skillet over high heat. A 12-inch skillet with sides about 3 inches high will allow you to brown all the chicken pieces at once. If you don't have a skillet large enough, brown the chicken in 2 batches, using 1 tablespoon of oil for each batch. Don't crowd the pieces in the pan or the chicken will steam rather than brown. Add the chicken to the skillet and brown for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, shifting the pieces with a metal spatula so the chicken doesn't stick to the skillet. When the pieces are nicely browned on all sides, remove from the pan and set aside. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the onions and minced garlic. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the onions have softened and are a rich golden brown. Add the wine and scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula or spoon to deglaze, loosening any browned bits. When the wine has evaporated, add the water, tomato paste, and remaining 2 whole garlic cloves. Return the chicken to the pan. The liquid should cover about three-quarters of the chicken. Reduce the heat to low, cover skillet with a lid, and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the chicken is tender and thoroughly cooked. (If the sauce becomes too thick, thin it with a little more water.) Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve with Orzo and sprinkle grated cheese on top of each serving.
