How to make pollo en salsa or chicken in sauce lol
May 6, 2015
So for this post I'm going to write how to make Pollo en salsa, this recipe is pretty simple and easy to follow but your guest will love it. Not only is the chicken very flavorful but you can combine it with pretty anything, rice, pasta, mash potatoes, etc. I made it with rice and black beans.
Chicken (any kind will do)
Salt or Sea Salt depending on your taste (I use Sea Salt)
Goya Sazon (The orange pack)
So now that you have all the ingredients let’s get cooking. In a medium/large pot you’re going to put in the chicken and some water so it doesn’t burn or stick to the pot, you can add as much or as little water you want, it will evaporate as your cooking, however don’t drown your chicken now lol make sure that the water doesn’t fully cover it. Once you have done all that you can start adding the rest of the ingredients, make sure to stir with the big cooking spoon and turn the chicken over every time you add the spices so it covers every single piece, that way your chicken can be much more flavorful. The order of the spices doesn’t matter and you can add as little or as much as you want. My hubby likes his dinner a little salty so I always add an extra pinch of everything.
If you feel that you went overboard with the spices and the chicken might be a little salty or taste too much like pepper or garlic, you can turn off your stove and very very carefully with pot holders take your pot to the sink and throw out some of the water, it might be a little difficult but try not to spill your chicken into the sink you can always use your cooking spoon to try and hold the chicken back, just be careful not to burn yourself. Once you have done all that you can just go ahead and add more water, the new water will cut down the ingredient that you feel you put too much off.
I’ve add picture below of all the ingredients as well as the end result of the chicken. Feel free to comment and post constructive criticism.
