I love chicken in garlic sauce– is one those recipes that brings back memories of when I was a kid…
I remember the first time I tried this dish. I was a little girl; My family and I went to this restaurant near the beach, and while everybody was ordering seafood I decided to go for this dish called “pollo al ajillo”. IT WAS SO GOOD.
Throughout the years I’ve been trying to recreate the exact recipe but of course that’s a little hard as I don’t know exactly what ingredients were used in the original recipe. I did came up with a version close enough to the original one and I love it! plus, I’m adding my daughter’s favorite vegetables: Mushrooms.
