This classic of the traditional Spanish cuisine has been one of my favourite dishes since I was very little. Chicken, rustic herbs and garlic, a lot of garlic! None of them could work without the other and they all contribute equally to obtaining a mind blower sauce. It is so good that I simply can't resist to dipping loads of bread in it (always thinking in making the life of my dishwasher easier, of course)

Ingredients

1 1/2 kg - Chicken wings

20 - Garlic cloves.

200 g - Baby button mushrooms

1 - Bay leaf

1 cup - White wine

400 ml - Water

1 - Lemon, squeezed

10 g - Fresh thyme (approx. 6 stems)

Directions

Cut the chicken wings into portions. Every chicken wing is comprised by a wing tip, a wing flat and a drumette. For this recipe we are not interested in the tips, and we will discard them. However we do not like to throw anything away, instead save them in a bag in your freezer, as they will make a nice chicken stock together with some more bones and chicken carcases.

Chicken wings portions

Take a large frying pan and add a generous dash of olive oil into it. Transfer the chicken into the pan, season with salt and cook for 30 minutes on a medium-high heat, until they start to brown evenly on both sides.

Crush the garlic cloves, leaving the skin on, and add them into the pan. Mix well and brown for another 5 minutes.

Preparation garlic chicken 2

Lower the heat to medium and add the bay leaf, the thyme stems, the white wine and the juice of a lemon. Cook until the wine reduces completely.

Preparation garlic chicken 4

Wash and cut the mushrooms in 4 pieces each. Add them to the pan and sauté for about 3 minutes.

Preparation garlic chicken 5

Add the water and let it simmer slowly for 5 more minutes until the sauce reduces and becomes thicker in consistency.

Preparation garlic chicken 6

Season with salt and pepper to your taste and serve in a plate. Pour the garlic sauce from the bottom of the pan on top of the chicken with a spoon.
