Chock full of garlic, this dish from the Castilian region of Spain is delish!!! Served with a salad and crusty French bread, it is sure to please.

Great flavor!-easy to prepare-bland in color-the dish was kind of biege. Maybe roasting the poatoes would some more color and adding some veggies! I'd recommend this dish-husband liked it-11 year old son asked me to throw the recipe away- Read More

Wow this was delicious! At the end we pulled the chicken out of the skillet and browned it skin-side-down in olive oil and reduced the sauce a bit. We threw in some red pepper flakes too. We've tried this with two Spanish red wines: a Rioja and a Ribera del Duero. Sarah and I agree that the Ribera del Duero (ours was 100% tempranillo) was far and away the better match. Looking forward to pairing the Rioja with the Beef Tenderloin Asturia recipe (from this site) tomorrow! Read More

It was excellent recipe. I cut the oil in half and instead of using all potatoes I mixed potatoes with onions carrots broccoli and celery. Not a huge fan of sherry so instead I used a Spanish Tempranillo wine with the port. It was delicious! Read More

tasty it is. Too much liquid in my opinion it turned into a stew. I grew up in Spain not like I remembered it to be. I will need to make some adjustments to the method of cooking it was looking so much like the dish I remember until all that liquid went in. 2 cups total? I agree with the sherry and the port sherry alone is fine in the South the dish is served with the potatoes don't remove that from the recipe the skin of the chicken and the potatoes caramelized the sugar in the sherry and the oil amount was just right. Eat it with crusty rustic bread. Read More

I tried making this but unfortunately it did not live up to catalonian memories. Did not like the potatoes soaked in port/sherry. Thanks for the recipe but I think I'll look for another one next time. Read More
