Made this for ZWT5 Spain & Portugal. Cut recipe in half (was only making for two people) and used chicken drumsticks with skin. Recipe had good flavor but I ended up adding about an extra 1 1/2 cups to 2 cups of water and my sauce was still lacking at the end - not sure if maybe I messed up a measurement or something.
