This sounds so good! Recipe courtesy of RecipeSecrets.com. Posted for Zaar World Tour II for the South European (Mediterranian) region.
- 4 potatoes, such as russets, peeled, and cut into quarters
- 4 carrots, peeled, and cut into large pieces on a diagonal
- 3 celery ribs, cut large pieces on an angle
- 1 large onion, cut large chunks
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 3⁄4 lb chorizo sausage, cut into 1 1/2-inch slices on an angle
- 4 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, leftover (preferably poached)
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 1⁄4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
- crusty Portuguese bread or other chewy farm bread, for passing at table
- Place potatoes, carrots, celery and onion in a pot. Pour in wine, add sugar, salt, and oil. Add 2 cups of chicken broth. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
- While vegetables cook, brown chorizo in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
- If your leftover chicken was frozen, defrost in microwave. If the leftovers were refrigerated, continue with recipe method as below.
- Remove the cover from the vegetables and add chorizo to the vegetables. Stir in tomato sauce. Set cooked chicken into the pot and heat through, 5 minutes. Adjust seasoning.
- Ladle Portuguese Chicken into shallow bowls and garnish with parsley. Serve with crusty bread for dipping.
This is virtually identical to a Rachel Ray recipe I tried (only the leftover chicken ingredient and handling is different - she calls for fresh poached, then sliced). It's delicious! Like a stew/soup. The chorizo (I used spicy and it wasn't overwhelming) melts into the sauce adding flavor and savoriness. The onions get to a wonderful texture â€“ chewy yet melt in your mouth â€“ and add sweetness. This went right into my tried and true recipe list.
Hi stacky I was searching for a different poultly dish, and since i'm portuguese I decided to try it out. Just left out the celery, didn't have any at hand, and also added in presunto cut into squares. It was what i'd say, a hearty meal!!! Thank-you for sharing this receipe.
