Spanish sherry as an ingredient really adds an authentic flavour to Spanish chicken dishes. In this recipe we have chicken pieces baked with garlic and Amoroso Sherry.

Ingredients for Spanish Chicken in Garlic and Sherry

4 chicken legs cut into thirds
3 potatoes, peeled and sliced
4 cloves garlic squashed and peeled
3 - 4 sprigs fresh thyme
Salt and pepper
Good sized glass Amoroso Sherry

How to make Spanish Chicken in Garlic and Sherry

  • Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper then heat a little olive oil in a large oven proof dish which can be placed over the hob.
  • Brown the chicken pieces in the dish until golden all over and remove.
  • While the dish is still over the heat, add the garlic, thyme and potatoes and cook for a few minutes moving around so they all get a good covering of the juices.
  • Spread the ingredients out so they are in one layer in the bottom of the dish and add the browned chicken pieces.
  • Pour over the sherry and bring to the boil, cooking for a few minutes.
  • Place the dish into a preheated oven and cook for 40 minutes or so until the potatoes are tender and most of the sherry has been absorbed.
  • Serve with seasonal vegetables.
