Patatas Bravos Con Pollo


This has been described as a beefed up version of a spicy potato tapas recipe. For me it’s a one pot wonder, quick, tasty and perfect for the autumn months ahead.

Serves 2

What you will need

2 chicken breasts ( next time I will use thigh meat as I prefer the taste)
New potatoes
8″ piece of chorizo ( the long thinnish one)
2 small or one large red onion
2 large tomatoes
Red pepper
2 cloves of garlic
Handful of flat leaf parsley
chilli sauce ( I used sweet chilli sauce tonight) to taste
Lemon juice 1/4 to a half
Olive oil

How to make it

1. Cut chicken breasts into large pieces.

2.Cut the onions, potatoes, red pepper and tomatoes into big chunks.

3.. Cut the chorizo into smaller chunks.

4. Place the chicken, potatoes, chorizo, peppers and onion into a large cookpot. Drizzle a little olive oil on them.

5. Roast in a preheated oven at 200°C/gas mark 6 for about 20 minutes, stirring every now and then to coat the ingredients with the paprika flavoured oils released from the chorizo.

6. Add tomatoes, sliced garlic, a big handful of chopped parsley, a big squeeze of lemon juice, a shake of chilli sauce and some ground or crushed black pepper.

7. Stir together well and return to the oven for about 20 minutes until the potatoes are tender.

8. Serve straight from the pot with steamed green beans.

This recipe was given to me by my lovely new friend and work colleague, Suzanne.

  1. Did this for supper tonight (12.09.2013) it must have been fairly good, ‘Er in doors had two heaped plates of it, good job I made enough for three! I used about a half a teaspoon of Encona Hot Pepper sauce in it and it worked out just about right. The only problem I encountered was that the potatoes although cut very small took too long to cook but otherwise fine. Thanks. Oh and I used rape seed oil.

    • Happy you both liked it! I used new potatoes cut in half and they cooked through ok. I would suggest either cutting them up smaller or cooking the whole thing for longer and using thigh meat instead of breast as it will not dry out so easily.

  2. Thanks fiona! I made this last night and it was super easy and yum. I s!oshed in some red wine , kept the new potatoes whole but parboiled them before.
    My housemate loved it! I’ve told him all about you : ) definately one to make again
    Love Lou x
