Chicken stew with almonds

Pollo guisado con almendras
Ingredients for 4 people
  • 1 free-range chicken
  • 2 onions
  • Olive oil
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • Parsley
  • Chili (optional)
  • Salt
  • 100 g of ground almonds
  • 150 ml of brandy
  • Cornstarch
  • Prunes

1. Cut the chicken into serving-size pieces. 

2. Fry the chicken pieces in the olive oil until golden and remove to a side dish.

3. Finely chop the onion.

4. In a casserole, heat the oil from frying the chicken, add the onion and sauté until golden. Add the garlic, parsley, chili pepper (optional) and ground almonds. Sauté everything until just golden, being careful to not let it burn.

5. Add salt to taste, the brandy and a little water. If you see that it starts to burn, reduce the heat accordingly.

6. Add the reserved chicken to the casserole, sautéing it a bit with the other ingredients, but make sure it doesn't stick (you can add a little more water).

7. When everything is well blended, add water, but not enough to cover the chicken. When it starts to boil, lower the heat and simmer slowly until it is tender. If you are in a hurry, you can always cook it in a pressure cooker, but always over low heat. 

8. Once the chicken is done, if the sauce is not thick enough, let it reduce and if you want, you can add a little bit of cornstarch dissolved in cold water and simmer the sauce a little more.

9. Add the prunes to garnish and serve.
