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.


300 grams boiling potatoes
200 grams cooked chicken
1 onions (small)
2 garlic cloves
olive oil
1/4 chorizo sausage
4 extra large eggs
100 milliliters milk
1 tablespoon parsley
ground black pepper
olive oil


1Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).
2Dice potatoes and shred chicken.
3Heat oil in a large skillet, saute onion and chopped garlic.
4Add diced sausage, and fry a little longer.

6Add chicken.
7Whisk eggs, milk, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper.
