I came across this recipe when I was around 10 years old. My mother's best friend is Portuguese and when she used to look after me I used to eat all of these unusually wonderful and tasty meals. This is the main reason why I still visit her! I don't actually know if it's 100% Portuguese, but I fail to find another exact recipe. This is very simple, but you can't turn your back away from this recipe.
Telma chicken stock cubes are quite hard to find in some areas. Most chicken stock cubes are fine to use, but try not to use any OXO or roast chicken flavoured ones. If you would prefer a more creamy, risotto-type chicken flavour, subsitute the chicken Telma for 2 of those liquid chicken stock tabs.
