Serves 4

  • ¼ cup potato starch
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 2 t. oil
  • 1 large chicken, skinned and cut up
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 2–3 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 t. dried parsley flakes
  • 1 t. paprika
  • 1½ cups dry or semi-dry white wine


Put the potato starch in a plastic bag with the pepper. Place the chicken pieces in the bag and shake well to coat the chicken lightly. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and brown the chicken. Remove the chicken from the pan and sautéי the onion, garlic, and celery until they are soft. Sprinkle the parsley flakes and paprika over the vegetables and mix it in. Pour in the wine and return the chicken to the pan. Cover and simmer until the chicken is fork-tender, about 1¼ hours.
