Leftover smoky Spanish chicken stew recipe

2 ratings

A simple, rustic stew with a smoky flavour. It freezes well – ideal for those days when you don’t want to cook. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our spiced roast chicken with herb stuffing dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once. See method
