    TxGriffLover's Note:

    This may not be the official national dish or Portugal, but it could be. Fragrant with the sweet aroma of Portugal's best wines, it's a dish you won't soon forget. Adapted from Worldwide Recipes.

    1. 1
      Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the oil and butter in a large heavy baking dish over moderate heat and brown the chicken on all sides.
    2. 2
      Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside. Saute the onions in the same baking dish until tender but not brown, about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir in the stock, wine, and oregano and return the chicken to the skillet. Cover and simmer over low heat until the chicken is tender, 45 to 60 minutes.
    4. 4
      Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and add the peas about 15 minutes before serving.

      DH and I made this chicken last night for dinner and thought it was excellent. First, it requires very little prep (always nice); second, it was really easy to make; third, I loved the flavor of the sauce! I served the chicken over mashed potatoes to really soak up all the sauce (there is quite a bit). I used fresh oregano from my garden. I would definitely make this dish again! Thanks!

      This was a delicious dinner. I made this for ZWT5-Spain/Portugal, and I used a whole cut-up fryer, a tawny Port wine, and fresh oregano from my own herb pots. Even my toddler loved this! Thanks!
