Description

This is a traditional Spanish dish and is often made with a whole spring chicken rather than the diced chicken. I love the simplicity and freshness of the ingredients, and even better the ingredients are all naturally gluten and dairy free.

My Spanish friend always ate this dish in the summer with a green salad and bread (ours would have to be gluten free) and in the winter with rice.

Enjoy!
