Garlic Chicken with Serrano Ham Recipe
Garlic chicken was a favorite dish when we lived in El Puerto de Santa María in Andalucía. The browned chicken has a delicious garlic flavor and the jamón adds a salty ham accent. Don’t forget the Pimentón de la Vera smoked paprika, it makes the dish. This recipe calls for a whole chicken, but you can amend it to use just thighs, breasts or wings.

Preparation

STEP 1

Divide the chicken into small pieces, splitting the thighs and breasts. Discard any trimmings like wing tips. Sprinkle with salt and set aside.

STEP 2 

In a casserole dish, preferably a cazuela, heat 3 tablespoons of oil and sauté the garlic until golden. Remove and reserve.

STEP 3

Fry the chicken in hot oil until well browned and almost done, about 15 minutes.

STEP 4

Add the jamón, sherry, bay leaf, parsley, reserved garlic and a dash of paprika. Squash the garlic lightly to release the flavor. Add the chicken broth and cover for about 10 minutes.

STEP 5

Serve the chicken with some of the olive oil sauce along with quality bread.
