Dominican Stewed Chicken

Pollo Guisado

Oh you have reached the Holy grail of Dominican cooking with Pollo Guisado

The Pollo guisado, or Pollo GUISAO’ as we Dominicans Say it. This is chicken with a load of flavor in it, super flavor, and the left over sauce gets sprinkled onto the white rice (with beans) this gets served with to make this a meal you shant soon forget.

The term itself translates to something like a chicken stew, so guisado can be anything from chicken, to beef, to fish, but for what we are trying to do we shall stick to chicken on this one.

Now you may hear that Puerto Ricans invented this recipe, and you will hear Dominicans are the rightful owners of this dish, I frankly leave the arguments to those who care, and save my tongue for the important part… EATING THE FOOD! This is a must try in my book.
