Remove the chicken from the refrigerator 45 minutes before beginning step 2.
Bring the water and wine to a boil in a 3 or 4 liter (3 or 4 quart) saucepan.
Add to the liquid the salt, bay leaf, and chicken drumsticks. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Cover the pot and gently simmer for 3 minutes.
Add the chicken thighs. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Cover and gently simmer for 10 minutes, turning the pieces after 5 minutes.
Transfer the chicken with a slotted spoon to several layers of paper towels and pat dry. Reserve the stock in the pan over low heat.
Heat the oil in a shallow casserole measuring at least 30 centimeters or 12 inches in diameter (or in a paella pan).
Brown the chicken pieces on all sides in the hot oil over moderate heat. (Brown in batches if necessary.)
Transfer the chicken to a warm bowl and cover it.
Add the rice to the casserole. Sauté it for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Reduce the heat to low to moderate. Add the onions and sauté them for 2 minutes. Add the Italian pepper and the garlic and sauté them for 1 minute. Stir constantly.
Add the tomatoes and lemon juice. Stir the mixture.
Strain the reserved chicken stock and add 5 deciliters or 2 cups of it to the casserole.
Add the saffron. Stir the mixture for 1 minute.
Arrange the chicken pieces on top of the rice. Bring the liquid to a simmer. Cover the pot and gently simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until the rice has absorbed all the liquid.
Let the covered pot stand off the heat for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle the Arroz Con Pollo with the parsley. Serve it at the table from the casserole.
