How to make Sabor's chicken thighs and patatas panaderas


  • 4 Chicken Thighs
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 100ml white wine
  • 300 ml of Estrella de Galicia
  • 100 ml Water
  • 1 kg chipping choice potatoes, peeled and cut in 1 cm slices.
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed skin on.
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 onion in Julianne
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 red pepper in Julianne
  • 6 Thyme stems
  • 30 ml Arbequina Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley


For The Patatas Panaderas:

In a pan over medium heat add 15ml of olive oil, the onion, garlic and the pepper; season to taste and cook everything for five minutes. Then in an oven tray place the potatoes, the 15ml of the arbequina olive oil, season them with salt and pepper; add the bay leaves, thyme and the onion, garlic and pepper previously cooked; add the water and 200ml of Estrella de Galicia. Cook everything in the oven at 170C for half an hour until the potatoes are soft. Add the chopped parsley.

For The Chicken Thighs:

In a hot pan add the 15ml of arbequina olive oil, over a medium heat add the thighs with the skin down, season to taste. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the skin is crispy, turn it around and add the remaining Estrella de Galicia, lemon juice and the wine. Put the pan in the oven and cook for 6-7 minutes in the oven at 170C until the chicken is cooked. Serve the thighs on top of the potatoes with the remaining jus.
