Chicken and Potatoes With Tomato Sauce (Pollo Sudado)

Recipe by Chef Sarita in Aust

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.

Thank you so much for posting this recipe. My mom used to make this all the time for us. This tasted almost identical to her "Mexican Chicken and Potatoes." She passed away 2 years ago and to be able to make this for my kids now is truly a blessing. I used chicken thighs and added a bit more spice and tomato sauce. Perfect! Thank you
