Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken stew (pollo guisado)

    • Breadcrumbs on May 13, 2010

      May '10 - first use of this rec. p. 228. Great recipe will make again. Simple, quick prep. Sauce ingredients pureed in blender and chx boiled ahead so final prep is super quick. I made a number of chgs to rec based on some fdbk on FoodTv site and, our preferences. I added 2 tbsp tomato paste to sauce, reduced adobo to 1 heaped tsp (vs 1/4 cup which would be wildly hot). Used fresh garlic which was used by Diner on tv (vs powder). Chg to prep - instead of shredding chx ahead, I simply broke apart w back of spoon once the chx was added to the sauce. This preserves all the juices and was a much simpler way of achieving results. I served over rice w Arepas but rec would make a great taco or burrito filling. Would also be good for a buffet as is chaffing dish friendly.
