Preparing this rustic chicken dish in a clay pot creates an aromatic broth and fork-tender roast vegetables. It is accompanied by a reimagined gremolata made of sautéed peppers, tomatoes, onions and garlic with refreshing hits of cilantro and lime. Photo credit: Sommer Collier from A Spicy Perspective.
For the Chicken, preheat oven to 400°F. Mix seasonings in small bowl. Reserve 2 teaspoons. Brush chicken with oil. Sprinkle with remaining seasoning mixture. Set aside.
For the Vegetables, toss vegetables with oil and reserved 2 teaspoons seasonings in large clay pot or 4-quart baking dish. Pour wine over top. Place chicken in single layer on top of vegetables. Cover with foil.
Bake 45 minutes. Remove foil. Increase oven temperature to 450°F. Bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until chicken is cooked through.
Meanwhile, for the Sofrito Gremolata, heat oil in medium skillet on medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion, tomato, garlic, cumin and coriander; cook and stir 2 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Pour into medium bowl. Stir in cilantro and lime juice. Serve chicken and vegetables sprinkled with Gremolata.
