Chicken Castanets Recipe


  • 8 chicken thighs (or 4 thighs and 4 drumsticks)
  • 2 tbsp Knorr or Maggi seasoning
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil plus more for sautéing
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 small Spanish chorizo (about 5 oz), sliced diagonally
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into rounds
  • 6 oz small white mushrooms (about 2 cups), lightly rinsed and wiped dry
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 16 grape tomatoes
  • ½ tsp dried thyme (optional)
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp water


  1. Marinate chicken pieces in Knorr seasoning for at least an hour or overnight.
  2. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Fry the chicken in batches, until golden brown; set aside.

  4. Add chorizo, carrots and mushrooms; sauté for 2 minutes or until mushrooms turned brown.
  5. Add chicken broth and browned chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and let mixture simmer for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
  6. Stir in tomatoes and dried thyme, if using. Give cornstarch mixture a quick stir and then add to the pan. Let mixture simmer until sauce thickens. Season to taste by adding Knorr seasoning if needed.
