@ Bob Wakeman : Thanks... Chorizo de Bilbao is the famous garlic sausage from Spain. You can see some pictures in the internet...just type chorizo de bilbao pictures.

And yes you can use chicken stock instead of water.

Thank again...:)

Enjoy cooking:)

Another delicious dish. I there something else to use instead of chorizo de bilbao? I don't think I can find it in my part of the country.
user Nonette Alcaraz kitchenett - Feb 12, 2013
Yes it is...if you don't have chorizo de bilbao in your area you can use hotdogs as a substitutes, but you must have to fry it first before adding into your chicken pastel...its yum...:) happy & i really appreciate your efforts in trying my recipes...thanks much Shelia...

This was a hit at our last gathering :) Thaks for the recipe.

I did a full blown pastel. After putting in the evaporated milk, I transferred the creamy stew into small square pie plates. Allowed it to cool thoroughly while I made a a buttery pie crust using real BUTTER. I placed the grated cheese after the pots were cool. Topped each pie dish with it and brush it with egg wash.

The extra effort really paid off. ;) Your creamy chicken stew worked very well with the BUTTERy crust. Yummm!
