This very easy chicken recipe has quickly become one of our regular favorites. The sauce goes quite well with simply steamed green beans, making it a perfect “one pot” meal.
4 small boneless chicken breasts or 8 boneless chicken thighs
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
8 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 oz brandy
8 thin slices Serrano ham, cut into small pieces
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
salt to taste
Heat a few tablespoons of oil into a large heavy bottom frying pan to medium-high. Add chicken and ham and brown chicken on both sides (approximately 5-8 minutes). Add onions, chopped garlic, tomatoes and brandy to chicken, stirring to mix. Cook uncovered on medium-low until onions become transparent. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for about 10-15 minutes or until chicken is done.
Serve with steamed green beans smothered in sauce and roasted baby potatoes and enjoy!
