This headline may sound like an exaggeration, but it's not. This recipe perfectly fuses the chicken's flavor and texture with a deep-flavored, umami-rich broth. And the best part…actually the two best parts are: It tastes like you cooked this for four hours & it takes less than an hour from start to finish.

4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin on - about 1.5 lbs
3 Tbsp canola oil - or any neutral oil
2 c chicken stock
1/2 c red wine
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
10 oz mushrooms, sliced
10 oz fresh spinach, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno, finely sliced
1 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 (plus leftovers, maybe..)

1 Tbsp canola oil - or any neutral oil

14 oz can of diced tomatoes - or 1 c chopped fresh tomatoes
