“My grandparents came from Pontevedra, Spain in 1920 through Ellis Island and brought this recipe with them. I grew up eating this dish and my children just love it. Of course, they never measured anything, so the measurements are just an estimate.” - by Chris
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Place the chicken pieces in a roasting pan skin-side down. Pour the olive oil and melted butter over the chicken. Sprinkle the pieces with minced roasted garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper.
- Roast in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces skin-side up and roast until the chicken is done and the skin is crispy, about 25 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the meat should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
- Serve the chicken pieces with the sauce on the side for dipping.

"We enjoyed with recipe, but I cut way back on the Oil and Butter (more like 3/4 c oil and 1/4 of butter)and the cook time indicated in the recipe would have been way too long and would have resulted i..." See moren very dry chicken. I would suggest no more than 35-45 minutes total depending upon your oven and the size of your chicken pieces. the flavors were very good and we will make this again. I did this recipe as a part of the Western Region's Faceless Frenzy July 2012."
