Chicken Ghiveci (Romanian Braised Chicken)

“This is a Romanian chicken dish that we love having with either bread or rice. DH would whip up a lot to last us for days so we don't need to cook much and we never get bored with it. Dried spices are used here to speed up preparation time and preparation time here assumes that the chicken has already been cut.”
