Spanish Chicken with Peppers

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sylvie Fortin

Adapted from a recipe I found in the Canadian Living magazine. I've made it twice with perfect results each time. If you like your spanish chicken a little more spicy, like we do, add a bit more cayenne and maybe even some cumin seeds.

This recipe is delicious and reminds me of the wonderful food I had when I visited Spain last year. I got two meals out of this and still had sauce left over, which I have frozen to use next time I make chicken breasts or legs. Merci beaucoup, Sylvie!
