“When I got tired of eating dry chicken breasts, I adapted a popular spanish tapa into a full-blown dish with savory chicken bits. Warning: not a good idea to make this before a date, unless he/she's having some with you.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut chicken breasts into even-sized cubes (1.5"x1.5" is perfect).
  2. Mix flour with pepper and salt (to taste). Place into a ziploc bag together with chicken cubes and shake untill all the cubes are well-covered.
  3. Melt butter together with olive oil in a large pan. Shake off any excess flour from the cubes and bake on each side till golden brown. Do not stir more than necessary to achieve even crust.
  4. Add bacon and garlic. Fry untill garlic develops aroma.
  5. Add wine. Let simmer untill partially reduced. Add chicken broth (NOTE: add more or less than suggested to make a thinner/thicker sauce according to liking).
  6. Let simmer untill chicken is done (depends on the thickness of the cubes) or untill sauce is reduced enough. Add freshly chopped parsley right before serving.
  7. Serve with brown rice or baked potatoes. Enjoy your juicy, garlicy chicken!
