California Golden Raisin Catalan Sauce

Measure raisins into mixing bowl. Add sherry and set aside to soak for 20 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients just to combine and let stand at room temperature to meld flavors.

Spanish Tortilla

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and season with salt and pepper. Toss potatoes in egg mixture to coat well. Set aside. Heat oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat and quickly arrange a single layer of egg-coated potatoes in the hot pan. Layer chicken, mushrooms and basil on top. Arrange remaining potatoes over all and press together lightly with spatula. Place in preheated oven and bake at 350°F for 10 to 20 minutes or until set and bottom is browned. Turn onto sheet pan lined with parchment. Keep warm.
