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.

I just made the chicken without the potatoe, it was very nice! Instead of cooking it in a fry pan I baked it in the oven and it turned out so nice and crispy.

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!
