Basque style chicken

Poulet Basquaise

Poulet basquaise is at least as popular, if not more than coq au vin in southwest France: onions, garlic, tomatoes, and peppers are sautéed and cooked with browned chicken pieces, seasoned with paprika and piment d’Espelette; many recipes include piquillos and an egg yolk at the end.
