Roasted Chicken/Frango Assado No Forno

I love recipes that I can just throw together and not fuss over. This chicken recipe is just that !

Ingredients: 
One chicken cut into pieces (can also be done with just chicken breast or chicken thighs)
1 large onion
1 red pepper
2-3 cloves of garlic
4 medium potatoes( peeled and cut into quarters)
2tsps of sea salt
1 to 2 tsp of paprika
ground pepper
2tblsp of olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
2 bay leaves 



In a large roasting dish add sliced onion, chicken, chopped red pepper, chopped garlic and potatoes. Add bay leaves then sprinkle with salt, paprika and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and the white wine. Place in 400 degree oven until  chicken is cooked through. Turn chicken pieces 2 to 3 times during cooking and drizzle with sauce. 

Update: You can also add carrots, celery and parsley to this dish. When the chicken is almost cooked toss in 1 to 2 bags of peeled roasted chestnuts just to warm up. We love chestnuts so at our house I use at least two 100g bags.

  • So glad you enjoyed it. I have also added carrots as well as zucchini. Thanks for coming by.

  • Did this dish last night. Followed the recipe. It was a huge hit with everyone. Simply delicious. Will definitely do it again but will add carrots, etc. minus the chestnuts.

  • Hi Olga, I use the peeled roasted chestnut from Aurora. There are other brands but I like these the best. For a whole chicken I use 2 bags. I fins them at the Portuguese grocery store but also Highland Farms and Loblaws. Not sure if they have those stores in your area. Just google the name so you can see the package. Thanks!

  • Hi Margaret, I love your receipts, you mentioned on your previous comment you use chestnuts where can I find them and how many do I add?

    Thank you

  • Thanks Amanda, I make it quite often. The family loves it. I also add vegetables such as celery, carrots and now chestnuts. I add the chestnuts that are precooked near the end so they roast just until warm.
