Chicken and Potatoes With Tomato Sauce (Pollo Sudado)

Total Time

This recipe was handed down by my grandmother. This is a delicious, very inexpensive meal that can feed a large family on a budget. I buy whole cut up chicken. This cuts out the prep time by about 15 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take off the skin from the chicken, discard and place chicken in a plastic bowl.
  2. Quarter the potatoes and also place in bowl with chicken. Add the chicken bullion and mix until all pieces are covered with bullion.

Great share! Thanks for uploading the recipe, I had to do this for an extra credit assignment in ACC Spanish 4.

Little changes I added and LOVED:
- using a HEB readymade/ precooked rotisserie chicken (original flavor) is quick and easy
- instead of 1/4 chopped tomato, go for the whole thing
- add 1 more table spoon of fresh cilantro to original amount
- add 2 table spoons fresh diced jalapeno
- add 1 more 8 oz can of tomato sauce

This recipe reminded me of a good oldfashioned stew with chicken instead of beef. A very nice simple family meal. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
