I made something similar to what I used to eat as a kid in Portugal, however with a twist, I used about 200mls of stout.
- 1 Onion (chopped)
- 2 garlic Cloves (minced)
- 2 bay leafs
- 200mls of stout
- 1 egg white (whipped to peak) 1 egg yolk (mixed with a couple of milk spoons)
- 150grs sliced chorizo
- 500grs long grain rice
- pinch of paprika
- salt and pepper to taste.
- 400grs of chicken thighs skinless and boneless (I took skin and bones myself ... cheaper)
- 4 olive oil spoons
While that is doing, place another pan with water and a little salt, once the water is boiling put the rice there cooking, once cooked drain the rice and rinse with boiling water, then once drain again put the rice with the chicken mixture, and fold until well mixed, then add to this the beaten egg white and fold it in.
Pour this mixture onto a Pyrex tray to go in the oven which you previously heated to 200c. On the the top brush the egg yolk. Place all in the oven and leave it for 15 minutes, until golden brown on top. Then serve it, put some salad if you want (I put some with balsamic vinegar) eat it and enjoy it.
