        I've just been watching Rick Stein in Spain where he showed the hearty, spicy stews this country is renowned for and which my Spanish cooking books describe so well. I'm really surprised that the above dish is classified as Spanish as it doesn 't seem to include any classic Spanish spices at all.

        I would expect there to be at least a hint of maybe paprika, or cayenne, garlic or saffron, cinnamon, cloves or nutmeg - which are intrinsic to Spanish dishes. Admittedly the herb thyme is included, but in Spanish cooking, this is normally combined with lemon and garlic.

        Tasty Chicken Stew – Yes. But somehow, I don't think this would pass the Masterchef test of creating a Spanish dish!

        Just re-read this recipe. The last step is "stir in the peas". No that it matters, but where are the peas in the ingredients list and in the picture... and for that matter, where is the corn in the picture?
