Basque Chicken Recipe

I like this Basque-style chicken, it is as beautiful as it is tasty, the chicken is gorged with the flavor of peppers, a dish that is almost sweet and salty. I had chicken thighs bought for this recipe, of course we must not forget the Espelette pepper for this recipe from the Basque region. In principle, we keep cooking the peppers for the end, they must above all remain a little firm. Basque chicken for a meal with grandpa René this evening for the France Iceland match, a beautiful evening in perspective, with the victory of our French. This Basque-style chicken originates from the Basque country, some people cite the town of Soule, at least with this recipe, it is impossible not to honor Espelette pepper and peppers. Of course, to accompany my Basquaise chicken, I chose a wine from the Basque country, a red Irouléguy, it was impossible to do otherwise.
