Chicken Costa Brava

Chicken Costa Brava

I’m thinking about Spain again and all the food I get to eat there. I’m so excited that I’ve decided to make another Spanish dish. This time, it’s Chicken Costa Brava. I think this is the ultimate comfort food, which is my specialty. It’s a combination of sweet, spicy and salty. This dish is super easy to make and a nice change to your boring weekday dinners.


  • 1 pack chicken thighs
  • 1 can roma tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 can crushed pineapple
  • 1 cooking onion
  • 1 cup Chorizo diced
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 cups kalamata olives
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine chicken with cumin until evenly coated
  • Heat oil in frying pan and brown chicken in oil
  • Add garlic, onion and red peppers. Cook until soft
  • Pour canned tomatoes into the pan. Add pineapples, olives and salsa
  • Season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes

I absolutely love this dish. I like to add a little rice to it. The spiciness of the chorizo works well with the sweetness of the pineapple. I hope you like it!
