    TinyBubbles's Note:

    This is a great weeknight dish I adapted from a Bon Apetit magazine recipe. Very nice in spring before the good local produce appears at the market.

      I wasn't able to make this exactly as written, but as good as it was with my changes, I'm sure the true recipe is even better. I thought I had olives, but didn't so substituted capers. I also didn't have shallots so used an onion. In spite of my substitutions, it was a delicious dish and I will be trying it again as written very soon. Many thanks!

      This is an absolutely wonderful recipe. There is positively nothing I would change or do differently (and I don't say THAT very often!). The sauce was deliciously savoury-sweet. Served with a saffron rice. Definitely a taste of Spain I'll be having again and again! Thanks for a winning recipe.

      I made this as written using about 18 chicken wings. It was so good!!! I used olive oil from Spain. Served it with white rice and a green salad. Made for ZWT5.
