3. Heat the oil in a large deep saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken wings, lower the heat and saute until the skin stiffens, about 4 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, mince the garlic and drain the corn.

5. Add the corn. Cover and simmer over medium heat until the wings are cooked through, 15 minutes. During this time chop the pimientos and add them to the skillet. Slice or chop the olives and set them aside.
6. When the chicken is cooked |-s»^l through, stir in the olives, cover, and simmer 5 minutes longer. Then stir the stew, season with red pepper flakes and salt to taste, and serve over the rice.
