How to make One Pot Braised Latin Chicken Drumsticks
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season all over with salt ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. The longer you salt the chicken the tastier it will be.
Add olive oil in a large saucepan on medium high heat. When oil is hot, add the chicken and brown for 4 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken and set aside on a plate.
In the same pan, add more oil if needed. Add the onion, garlic, celery and salt and cook for 4 minutes. Add the diced tomato, oregano, chicken broth and salt and pepper. Stir, reduce heat to low heat, and cook for 1 hour and a half.
When the chicken is ready, squeeze half a lime into the sauce and stir. Garnish with cilantro.
