    Andrew Sudron's Note:

    The star ingredient here is chorizo, a sausage I encountered in Spain and which gives this dish a wonderful flavour. It's not spicy as such, but full of flavour. Available from most supermarkets nowadays. Try for a unique experience

      Delicious! I used chicken breasts cut into large pieces as the breasts were very uneven sizes, and a large glug of sherry. I will definitely be making this again and again.

      Made it exactly by directions but we felt it needed a little more flavor. I cooked the chorizo sausage according to package directions boiling it first in a small amount of water (Johnsonville brand) but they were really greasy. I removed the casings before adding to chicken. After it cooked I let it cool and removed some of the grease before serving. There's got to be a way to get more of the grease out. I'll keep watching to see if anyone has a solution. Thanks!
