    Sackville's Note:

    I just love chorizo. The Spanish sausage has so much flavour and it really makes this chicken dish special. The kind to use in this dish is the raw pork sausage, not the kind that is more like a deli meat.

      This is a great recipe and I'm surprised no one has reviewed it before now. I found it easy to prepare and it tasted very good. I served it with Mean Chef's Basque Potatos (also good) both use smoked paprika which was nice. I used skinless chicken breasts which I cut into large chunks and a can of chopped tomatos from which I drained most of the juice. The only thing I will add next time is a table spoon of tomato paste, more to enhance the colour than the flavour. If you can't get smoked paprika or you don't want so much spice you could subsitute sweet hungarian paprika. I recommend this recipe and will make it again.

      Delicious, very rich flavors. I took ellle's advice and added a few spoons of tomato paste. The depth in flavors was just wonderful. I used almost 2 whole onions because I was trying to use them up, but I browned them in the beginning with chorizo before cooking the chicken. I served this with Mean's Basque Potatoes after I read the suggestion in Eegee's review. My husband and my father in law couldn't put this down and said 5 stars, no question about it! Will make again and again, thanks for posting!

      This was ok, I was not too crazy about it. I definitely ate it, but I don't think I will ever make it again. The list of ingredients looked like I will definitely like it, but somehow I was expecting bigger flavors which I didn't find.
