Chicken Tortilla


Don't be confused by the name of this dish: There are no actual tortillas in it, but instead it is the Spanish style of omelet that is called tortilla and is always a vehicle for potatoes and eggs and often chorizo, the national sausage. Those ingredients are combined with shredded chicken and seasonings and cooked in a skillet like you would a frittata, letting the underside brown before baking to brown the top.

  • 200 grams cooked chicken
