Spanish chicken & NZ vino… Why not?!

It’s Bank holiday, it’s sunny so I feel obligated to indulge in some Rosé. I spied The Ned Rosé in Majestic wine when I bought some of my much loved Pinot Grigio,  (see earlier post) and felt that one should crack it open.  I really love the freshness of all of these wines from Marisco wine makers in the glorious Waihopai Valley in New Zealand.  This fine specimen was bottled last year, worth its £10.99 in my opinion and can be drunk with a nice light dish such as my Spanish Chicken with Mediterranean flavours or just by itself.  The colour is vibrantly gorgeous, creamy with depth and bursting with cherries and raspberries whilst still remaining quite dry.  I am such a wannabe ambassador for The Ned Vinos and if asked would of course make myself fully available for jaunts to New Zealand for research purposes naturally.

 To accompany this vibrant vino, my well worn recipe of Spanish chicken is perfect.  (Serves 4-5).

Take 10 chicken thighs and place in a large dish.  Add 2 roughly chopped onions, one garlic bulb sliced in half.  To this add juice of 2 lemons, then chuck in the lemon skin. Slice up 200gms chorizo,  cut in half 400 grams of New potatoes add both in with a good dollop of Olive oil, and season.  For colour towards the end of cooking add some on vine cherry tomatoes.  The best thing about this dish is that it’s so low maintenance.  Put in the oven for 45 minutes on 170 degrees centigrade.  Serve with a nice green salad and some good bread to mop up the delicious chorizo and lemon juices. Enjoy!
