DIRECTIONS

  • Heat 4 TBS olive oil in a heavy pan over medium heat, then fry the chicken for about 10 minutes or until golden on all sides; remove and set aside.
  • Add the onions, garlic and pepper to the pan and saute until the onion is golden.
  • Add the tomatoes, sherry and saffron with water and bring to a simmer.
  • Cook 10-15 minutes to evaporate excess liquid (you want to arrive at a fairly thick sauce at this stage).
  • Return chicken to pan along with bay leaf, cinnamon stick, salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a simmer, cover loosely and cook for about 30 minutes until the chicken is tender and completely cooked and the sauce thickened.
  • To finish, heat 1 TBS oil over medium-high heat in a small skillet and fry the breadcrumbs and almonds till golden (stirring all the while); remove from heat and stir in the paprika, mixing well.
  • Serve each breast with sauce and with almond mixture sprinkled over the top of all.
