Taste of Spain!


SPANISH STYLE CHICKEN WITH CHORIZO

This is absolutely delicious and full of the flavour of Spain.
INGREDIENTS

3 TBLSPS EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

1 SMALL ONION  CHOPPED

1 CLOVE GARLIC  FINELY SLICED
200g GOLDEN POMODORINI (Small sweet Tomatoes) TOMATOES HALVED

100g CHORIZO SLICED

4 SKINLESS CHICKEN THIGHS
3 SMALL TO MEDIUM PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS SLICED

1 TBSP SPANISH SHERRY VINEGAR
HANDFUL FRESH BASIL  TORN

SALT AND GROUND BLACK PEPPER

METHOD

Heat the oil on a moderate setting  in a large shallow pan, add the Onion and Garlic.Fry for five minutes until soft and add the Chorizo, cook for a further two minutes or until the Paprika from the Chorizo is released.  Add the Chicken and continue to cook until browned turning occasionally (about 6 – 10 mins).  Now add the Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Sherry Vinegar, Fresh Basil, Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Cook on a high heat for 5 minutes stirring from time to time so that the   chicken doesn't stick. Now pour in enough hot water to come half way up the chicken, bring to the boil, lower the heat, cover and simmer gently for 30mins. Stir the pan occasionally to avoid sticking.
Uncover the pan and continue to cook until the sauce becomes a little thicker, dress with a few spare Basil leaves and Serve with Spanish Style fried potatoes. Delicious!
