Recipe by Chris
"My grandparents came from Pontevedra, Spain in 1920 through Ellis Island and brought this recipe with them. I grew up eating this dish and my children just love it. Of course, they never measured anything, so the measurements are just an estimate."

1 (3 to 3 1/2 pound)
whole chicken, cut into pieces
roasted garlic, minced
sweet Pimenton de la Vera (Spanish smoked paprika)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
We enjoyed with recipe, but I cut way back on the Oil and Butter (more like 3/4 c oil and 1/4 of butter)and the cook time indicated in the recipe would have been way too long and would have resulted in very dry chicken. I would suggest no more than 35-45 minutes total depending upon your oven and the size of your chicken pieces. the flavors were very good and we will make this again. I did this recipe as a part of the Western Region's Faceless Frenzy July 2012.
bset cihckn evr.
really exceptional taste and so easy.
This is so tasty and very simple! Love the Spanish flavor!
I expected more flavor from this dish after reading the reviews, but was disappointed. I did need so much oil for dipping.
