"Spanish" Chicken Recipe
Hello everyone! I have had a pretty great week considering the stress of coming back from Paris and getting an infection, which I'm fortunately getting treated for. On one side, I have ginally heard back from a job but I'm still in the application process, so fingers crossed that I get it. It's right up my alley but I don't want to talk too much in case I jinx it. On the other side, I have not been productive since Paris, I have not gotten out my yoga mat or done any calligraphy and instead I have played the sims 4... let's hope I can motivate myself to do something tomorrow.
Anyway, this recipe was originally from a friend of mine. She passed it on to me at a time when I couldn't figure out what to make next. My partner and I got bored of chicken breasts and wanted something else that would fill us up as much. My partner also loves spices but sadly spices don't love me, however, this recipe worked for both of us. I have purposely left the amount of spices needed blank on purpose because I think that's something you need to taste yourself. What I like may not be what your tastebuds like and vice versa.
You can eat this recipe with potatoes, rice or couscous, it would also be nice with some pasta. As always, please tell me how you cooked it and if you liked it!
- 6 Tomatoes
- 6 Chicken thighs
- 2 red chillies
- 2 Red Peppers
- chilli powder
- Crushed chilli flakes
- Preheat your oven to 200°C.
- Mix the paprika, chilli powder, and crushed chillies in a small container and add a teaspoon of oil. Then with a brush or your hands rub the spices into the chicken. Transfer to an oven proof dish and leave to stand for around 20 minutes
- Chop the chillies and pepper into slices. You can chop the tomatoes and make a sort of tomato sauce too, if you would like but I like my tomatoes whole. Then, put the vegetables into the dish with the chicken and cook in the oven for roughly 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Be careful not to burn the vegetables.
