This sounds really good, thanks for sharing.

As for the Carne de Porco a Alentejana, it's one of my favorites too and Cozido a Portuguesa YUM YUM.

Do you like Alheiras? I love them and I wish I could get some here in the States LOL

I have all these ingredients in the house. I may have to make this tomorrow. I'm glad you like the chicken recipe. My sister in law made it up. It is very good.
