Hi, I'm Debra! Nothing brings me greater joy than talking about food. Especially talking about food that I’ve traveled far and wide to get to.

Author's Notes

If you haven't tried sherry vinegar, I really recommend it for this recipe. It has a distinct flavor that lends itself well to the other bright and bold flavors in the dish. It really gives it the flavor of Spain. It's also great for making bistro-style salad dressings. Try it!

Once the skin is crispy, flip over and cook an additional minute or so on the other side. Set chicken aside.
