    Lou van's Note:

    Puebla-style chicken, taken from "Mexican Cooking" (my bible!). Loads of ingredients but don't let them put you off--it's really quite easy and the end product is worth the wait. Great served with Arroz Blanco.

      Lou, I gotta tell you that I am from the school of less prep time, more time to have fun. However, I chose this recipe and by darn, I sure am glad! I used muffin papers to hold the different spices until time to use. My counter looked so pretty in all the colors! I did cheat a little and used a roasted chicken from the market. Also did not use the raisins (my sister thinks raisins are only good for cookies). This was also my second adopted recipe this PAC to use fennel seeds. Usually I can go months and months w/o using them! Thnx so much for posting, Lou. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
