Chilean Corn Casserole. This version uses chicken; other versions use beef, as well. Some say that it is not authentic if it doesn't include beef, but I have it on good authority that this is not always the case. However, I'm less concerned with whether it's authentic than whether it tastes good.
- 29.58 ml oil
- 226.79 g boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 onion, chopped

- Heat oil over medium-high heat and stir-fry chicken, onion, raisins and chili powder until chicken is browned and onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
