Ingredients

2 tablespoons kosher salt

2 tablespoons smoked paprika

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs (about 6 to 8)

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 medium yellow onions, quartered and thinly sliced crosswise

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 medium russet potato, small dice

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Directions

  1. Combine kosher salt, paprika, and 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Pat chicken dry and rub the mixture all over. Place a 3-to 4-quart Dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat and add oil. When it smokes, add chicken, skin side down, and cook until well browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and repeat on second side.
  2. Transfer chicken to a plate and drain off all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings. Return to stove on medium heat, add onions, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook until golden and softened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add potatoes and broth and scrape the pan to incorporate any browned bits. Add chicken, bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate and cover.
  4. Bring sauce to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until slightly reduced, about 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning, as desired. Add chicken, turn to moisten in sauce, and serve.
