Ingredients for Slow Cooked Brandy Chicken

4 chicken legs, separated into thighs and drumsticks
1 1/2 bulbs garlic
Reasonable size glass brandy
1 bay leaf
Olive oil
Paprika (I usually use mild paprika but you can use the hot version if you prefer)

How to make Slow Cooked Brandy Chicken

  • Sprinkle the chicken with a generous amount of salt, pepper and paprika, then rub the seasoning into the chicken and leave to rest for about 20 minutes.
  • Peel and roughly chop the garlic.
  • Heat a little olive oil in a large casserole dish or pot (the Spanish use a traditional olla) and slowly brown the chicken pieces on both sides. Add the garlic about halfway through this step.
  • When the chicken is browned add the brandy and bay leaf.
  • Cover and cook gently until the chicken is tender, about 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the pieces.

Serve with rice or a salad.
