    Does anyone know how to make the Pollo Gratinado they serve at Plaza Azteca? I had it last night and I am HOOKED!!! It was so good and I would love to make it at home for my husband since we rarely can afford to go out to eat.

    Found this description: Grilled chicken chopped with onions covered with
    melted Mexican cheese

    All the recipes I found were in Spanish. The few I was able to translate seemed to be a main dish rather than the appetizer that was described on the restaurant's menu - it is the appetizer you are looking for?

    I'll keep on looking

    You can combine some of the ingredients from these both recipes and recreate the one you like served at the Plaza Azteca Mexican Restaurant, according with the description in the menu:

    By Pamela Aldrete - Source: Elena Armida
    1 chicken pieces
    100 grams. margarine = (3.5 oz.)
    1/4 of a liter of fresh cream = aprox. 1 cup - (use "Cacique" Mexican Cream )
    1 tablespoon of mustard
    1/4 of Chihuahua cheese, grated - ( or use Monterey Jack cheese)
    4 green roasted chiles, cut in slices
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Stir the melted butter with the cream, mustard, salt and pepper, smeared chicken pieces and arranged in a baking glass pan, cover with foil and baked in the oven at 350 degrees for forty-five minutes, uncovered and you put the slices of peppers and grated cheese on top is left uncovered until cooked through and cheese. If you like you can leave until lightly browned chicken.

    Caribbean Queen's Note:
    Years ago I was San Louis Potosi, Mexico, at a quaint little restaurant on the Zocalo.
    I ordered the most amazing chicken dish...

    And here is the interesting review posted for this recipe:

    Review By MexicoKaren - on February 13, 2012
    "This is a delightful recipe, but I doubt if you were served cheddar cheese in San Luis Potosi, because it is extremely rare in Mexico.
    I have lived here for several years, and I suspect that the cheese on this yummy recipe was either Manchego or Oaxacan or Chihuahua.
    I also advise roasting the chiles first - it gives them a better flavor. Thanks for sharing it, however - we enjoyed it with Manchego cheese.
