Chicken and Fruit Casserole

4 1/2 lb Chicken parts
6 Peppercorns
1 Whole clove
1 1/2-in piece of cinnamon
1 tb Sugar
1/4 c Dry sherry
3 Garlic cloves; minced
1/4 c Vinegar
1 lg White onion; thinly sliced
2 md Tomatoes; peeled and sliced
1 sm Apple; peeled, cored and thickly sliced
1 sm Pear; peeled, cored and thickly sliced
2 Bay leaves
1/8 ts Thyme
1/8 ts Oregano

For Garnish:
1/4 c Vegetable oil
1 Plantain; peeled and sliced
2 tb Capers; drained
15 Green olives, pitted halved

Sprinkle the chicken with salt. Grind the peppercorns, clove and cinnamon together in a spice mill and mix with the sugar, sherry, garlic, vinegar and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Spread 1/3 of the onion in the bottom of the slow cooker; cover with 1/3 each of the tomatoes, chicken and fruit. Add the bay leaves and sprinkle with some of the seasonings and pour on half the vinegar-spice mixture. Repeat the layers, finishing up with a topping of onion, tomatoes and fruit. Cover and cook for about 1 hour, then uncover and cook for 30 minutes longer, or until the chicken is tender and some of the juices have been reduced. Discard bay leaves.

For the Garnish:

Heat the oil and fry the plantain slices until deep golden brown. Remove and drain. To serve, cover the top of the stew with the capers, olives and plantain.
