Cooking chicken with capers:

Step 1: prepare chicken, onions, capers and parsley.

Peel the drumstick and chicken thighs with a knife, if any, wash the meat under running water from various kinds of contaminants and pat dry with paper kitchen towels. Then put the chicken in a deep plate. Open the jar of capers with a canned wrench and, using a tablespoon, separate the amount you need by placing the ingredient in a clean, deep bowl. Rinse the peeled onions, rinse with parsley under running water. Dry the onion with paper towels, and shake the greens over the sink from excess liquid. After, place these 2 ingredients on a chopping board and chop the onion into a cube with an approximate diameter of 1 centimeter, and chop the parsley finely. Arrange the slices in separate plates.

Step 2: fry the onions.

Turn the stove on a medium level and place a pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil on it. Throw the chopped onion into the preheated fat and fry it for 2 to 3 minutes stirring with a kitchen spatula until a light coating of golden crust and transparency. Then transfer the fried vegetable to a deep bowl and rinse and dry the pan with paper kitchen towels.

Step 3: bring the dish to full readiness.

Place a clean, dry pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil on a medium range cooker. When the fat is hot, dip the chicken thighs and drumstick into it, salt and sprinkle the meat with black ground pepper to taste. Fry the chicken until golden brown, periodically turning pieces of meat on one side or the other with a kitchen spatula for uniform frying. It will take you about roasting meat 12 - 15 minutes, bring it to full readiness at this stage is not necessary! When the pieces of meat become a golden hue, remove them from the pan, transferring the chicken to a plate, and add lightly fried onions, capers and parsley to the aromatic oil. Stir them together with a kitchen spatula. 1 minute then add the right amount of chicken stock, white wine vinegar to the pan, and bring the liquid to a boil. Then add the fried chicken to the pan, cover the container with a lid, screw the stove to the lowest level and simmer your dish for 1 hours 30 minutes until the meat is ready. During this time, the chicken will become soft and very tender with a pronounced taste of pickled meat. Onions will almost completely dissolve in aromatic gravy, and capers will retain their shape, but will give their juices to meat. Place a portion of the finished chicken with capers on a plate, pour the resulting sauce and taste.
