Chicken in Garlic Sauce – Pollo al Ajillo
This Chicken dish, is probably a staple in every Gibraltarian household. However, as with so many other recipes, we tend to add and adapt ingredients to suit our own personal tastes. What can I say! this is the way we do things in Gibraltar.
As is the common theme with the majority of these recipes this was my Grandmother’s adaptation of the classical Chicken stew, and I am sure that the addition of peas, was because my Grandfather loved this veg to addiction. On more than one occasion I remember my grandmother telling my grandfather that “peas are not ingredients in this recipe” but my granddad would only out stare her until she succumbed and added them into the stew, or served them alongside the dish.
I hope you try this simple dish of chicken stewed to perfection in garlic sauce, as I am sure it’s going to fill your house with hunger inducing aromas and your belly with the comfort of good home made bliss.
