      Yield: 8 Servings
      2    Chickens, cut into 8 pieces
           -each, wing tips trimmed
    1/4 c  Extra-virgin olive oil
      2 tb Extra-virgin olive oil
      4    Garlic cloves, coarsely
      2 tb Balsamic vinegar
      2 tb Dried thyme
      2 tb Dried tarragon
    1/2 t  Coarsely ground black pepper
      1 lg Onion, halved and thinly
      2 tb All-purpose flour
      2 c  Defatted chicken broth
      1 c  Medium tawny port
      1 tb Red currant jelly
      2 c  Dried apricots
           Salt to taste
           Freshly ground black pepper

  Marinating the chicken in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dried thyme and
  tarragon add great depth to a rice sauce that's smoothed by just a
  hint of red currant jelly and enhanced with apricots and tawny port.
  Be sure to use tawny port. With its beautiful amber color and
  slightly dry flavor, it compliments the apricots. Save your ruby
  port, which is sweeter and has a deep red wine color, for after
  1. Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, chopped garlic,
  vinegar, thyme, tarragon and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add the chicken,
  toss together well and marinate at room temperature for 2-3 hours or
  refrigerate overnight.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade, scraping off any bits that might
  remain. Reserve marinade. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a
  large, heavy casserole. Brown chicken in small batches over medium
  heat until golden, turning once or twice. Set finished pieces aside.
  4. Add onion slices to casserole, reduce heat and cook, stirring, for
  2 minutes or until they begin to brown. Toss onion slices with flour
  and continue cooking, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes longer.
  5. Add broth, port wine and red currant jelly. Cook, stirring, for
  another 2 minutes. Stir in the apricots, reserved marinade and
  6. Cook over low heat, partially covered, for 20 minutes. Remove
  cover and cook for 20-30 minutes more or until chicken is cooked
  through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If desired, serve with
  cooked noodles and garnish with chopped parsley.
