READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Berts Kitchen Witch

Another one of my "twisted" recipes. That is to say, my twist on chicken durango. Serves up well with Spanish rice and a green salad.

This is so good! I cubed the chicken (DH prefers it that way) and as it's 3 or 4 days before my monthly shopping I had to use things that were in the pantry stores. Canned mushrooms instead of fresh, some canned tomato's in place of tomato paste and black olives in place of the green. Having said that this is very quickly made and yet doesn't taste like a "need something fast" meal. The flavors come together beautifully and made a very pleasing and satisfying meal.
