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.
- 1 whole cut up broiler-fryer chicken
- 5 white medium sized potatoes
- 1⁄4 cup chopped white onion
- 1⁄4 cup chopped tomato
- 1⁄4 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- Take off the skin from the chicken, discard and place chicken in a plastic bowl.
- Quarter the potatoes and also place in bowl with chicken. Add the chicken bullion and mix until all pieces are covered with bullion.
- In a large cooking pot, add the oil and heat. When oil is heated, add the chopped onions, tomatoes and bell pepper. Saute for about 1 minutes or until translucent.
- Add the chicken and potatoes to the pot and brown the chicken. About 7 to 10 minutes.
- Add the tomato sauce and add enough water to cover the chicken. Add the cilantro. Add salt IF NEEDED.
- Cover and cook for about 30 minute or until potatoes are cooked.
- Serve with white rice.
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.
