Here’s my version of the famous dish poulet à la Catalane, in which a rich Mediterranean-style sauce can make even a supermarket chicken taste good. Use a first-rate chicken and it will be superb! Serve with good crusty bread.
Generously season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Cut away any excess fat. Loosely wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days. About 1 hour before serving, remove the chicken from the refrigerator and pat dry.
