Recipe by Coren team


  • 8 Free-range chicken drumsticks
  • Fresh mushrooms
  • 1 onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 bread slices
  • 75 gr of almonds
  • 1 glass of Ribeiro wine
  • Oregano
  • Thyme
  • Garlic
  • Parsley
  • Olive oil
  • Salt


1.The day before, marinate the chicken with the spices and the olive oil and store it in the fridge.

2.Brown the chicken drumsticks in a pan for 20-25 minutes. Turn the fire off and let them inside so they can keep the heat.

3.In a shallow pot, stir-fry the –previously sliced– garlic, onion and carrot. Once browned, add the drumsticks and the glass of wine and stew everything on a medium fire for about 45 minutes.

4.While the stew is getting ready, add the garlic cloves, the mushrooms and the almonds into a pan until the mix is well toasted. When it is, transfer it to a bowl.

5.In the same oil, toast the bread slices. A couple of minutes on each side will suffice.

6.In a mixer glass, add the stir-fry (garlic, mushrooms and half of the almonds), a slice of toasted bread, the stew's wine sauce and the carrots. Grind everything thoroughly.


In a deep plate, serve the sauce and fill the bottom side as if it were a soup. Then, add a drumstick or two with some almonds and thyme on top.
