Pollo Guisado ( Chicken Stew )

Total Time

This is a yummy version of chicken stew that I got from my Puerto Rican inlaws. Very tasty and inexpensive to make. I have never measured the ingredients so I guessed on them. Serve over white rice with some corn niblets and you have a very filling, delicious meal. Can easily be doubled.
