Servings 4


  • 2 tbsp of an equal mix of oregano, dill, parsley and a pinch of red pepper flakes you will need to create this mix.
  • 1 tsp spicy paprika
  • juice of half of a lemon
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Sherry wine
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 4-8 chicken thighs enough for four people
  • 3-4 potatoes cut in wedges
  • 8 cloves garlic Whole or sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp sherry or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth


  • Mix 1 tbsp of the spice mix, paprika, Lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, 1/4 cup sherry wine, 1 clove garlic pressed and salt into a large bowl or container. Marinate the chicken for at least two hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large, deep oven safe frying pan (big enough to hold chicken thighs and potatoes or two oven safe pans if you need), sauté the garlic in about 2 tbsp olive oil over medium high heat for about 1 minute. Add the potato wedges and season with a pinch of salt and pepper and generously with the rest of herbs and spices and more paprika. Continue to sauté for about 2 minutes until potatoes begin to brown.
  • Place the chicken thighs skin side down in the pan and let brown for about 2 minutes, and then flip and let brown for an additional 2 minutes. Save marinade for next step.
  • Add the marinade, an additional cup of sherry wine, sherry or red wine vinegar, butter and chicken broth and let the liquid come to a simmer.
  • Place in the oven for about 45 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Broil the chicken thighs and potatoes for about 4-6 minutes to get them crispy. Chicken may crisp sooner than potatoes, so be prepared to take out chicken first so it doesn't burn
  • Serve it with the sauce from the pan.
