  • Summary

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 4 whole chicken legs, skinned and cut into thighs and drumsticks (about 2 1/2 pounds)
    • 1 medium yellow onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice
    • 3 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch dice
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 1 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
    • 1 cup low-sodium canned chicken broth
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 cup dry white wine
    • 4 sprigs thyme
    • 1/3 cup raisins
    • 1/2 cup pitted, roughly chopped large green olives, such as Cerignola (about 6)
