How to make a chicken in pepitoria with Shiitake mushrooms.

This is a dish that is generally made with hen, the famous hen in pepitoria but given the impossibility of knowing where to find it here, I have opted for free-range chicken that also gives a phenomenal result in stews.

If we give it a less traditional touch with some boletus or in this case with Shiitake mushrooms , we get a very complete second dish of chicken in pepitoria.

It should not be said that if the chicken is homemade, the dish is more than delicious and has nothing to envy the best of chickens.

Marisol and her yaya Sole recipe

  • Marisol comments to me: “ I am delighted to see the recipe for chicken in pepitoria. I have been collecting my family’s recipes for a while and this is one that we all carry in our memory and on the palate.
  • In our house “ la yaya Sole ” cooked it many Sundays. Just this week, I have been sending it to my sisters, my daughters and nephews to encourage them to cook it and thus preserve the tradition.
  • But it is that, in addition, my little sister underwent surgery for a brain tumor and spent four months in a coma, when she woke up she did not remember who she was, she did not know us, she had forgotten to read, write…. all your memories.
  • On Saturday, we talked about the chicken in pepitoria, I sent him the recipe photograph by photograph of the steps I had followed. She sent me a message saying enthusiastically that it had been terrific…. and added “how many memories !!!”
    As you can see, a simple but delicious dish, with an exciting result for me.
