As you’ve probaly guessed by the number of chicken dishes in my novel ‘Love & the Goddess’, chicken is extremely popular in South America. This rich dish is suitable for a special occasion and is wonderful accompanied by a glass of full bodied red wine. I love to serve a fresh green salad with it ,or maybe some string beans for contrast.
