 Ingredients List

In a large casserole, saute onions and garlic over medium heat in butter
until onions are soft. Brown chicken pieces in the butter and remove from
pot as they are done.

When all chicken pieces are browned, turn up heat, add vermouth and brandy

Turn heat down to low, add cinnamon, tomato paste and pepper, and stir
until mixed. Add chicken back to pot and add tomatoes. Cook over very low
heat for at least 2 hours, until chicken is tender.

* Vary the seasonings to taste by leaving out the garlic or doubling it,
or by increasing or decreasing the amount of cayenne pepper. You can use
crushed red pepper flakes in place of the cayenne.

: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 15 minutes preparation, 2 hours simmering.
: Precision: no need to measure, except the cayenne pepper.
