Here you will find a sample of the main spanish chicken recipes. The spanish cuisine is well known for its variety. As a matter of fact, Spain is a small country full of contrasts. You could travel from the snow to the desert in just one day.
This variety of landscapes and climate has made its people to learn to cook within the same variety. For example, whereas in the north, stews and soups are very common, in the south fried chicken and salads are more popular.
Don't let yourself be fooled though, because spanish gastronomy is quite linked to chicken.
As I said, we will go only over the main spanish chicken specials that will include the famous spanish paella, of course, but also some others like chicken "al ajillo". Ajo means garlic, and it is a main ingredient for many of the spanish traditional recipes along with parsley.
As it occurs about the italian recipes, all the spanish recipes include olive oil, essential when speaking of mediterranean cuisine.
