Pollo Guisado

Wow. Has it really almost been a year since I went on sabbatical down to Puerto Rico? And is this really the first glimpse of comida criolla that I’ve given you? Crazy, right? Better late than never! 😉 This is my version of the classic Puerto Rican dish pollo guisado. Pollo guisado literally translates as chicken stew, which is exactly what this is! Chicken thighs and potatoes braised with fire-roasted tomatoes, olives and caper. So simple. So delicious! And, what’s more, that even though it’s rich (note the bacon fat – YUM) and is made with chicken thighs it still only rings in at 371 calories per serving….if you can resist eating only one serving. Buen Provecho!

  1. Totally mouthwatering! Just in time for father’s day. Can I substitute red-skin potatoes for russet potatoes?
