|Chicken Sofrito Stew|
We came across this recipe while searching for low fat recipes. It needed just a little bit of tweaking to become a Dukan recipe. We've missed using sofrito and this is a great simple recipe for sofrito.
It also calls for sazon and we love cooking with sazon. Plus side to using sazon, it makes your food really yummy...down side to using sazon, it stains.
Although we are trying to really watch our fat intake due to our upcoming trip, next time we will try this recipe using chicken thighs. Also, it was a bit salty for us, maybe due to the crushed tomatoes we used versus using fresh diced tomatoes.
Prep Time: 15-20 minutes
Cook Time: 30-45 minutes
6 green onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 -14 oz. can crushed tomatoes or 2 tomatoes, diced (the later is preferred)
1/3 c. red bell pepper, diced
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 t. kosher salt
1 packet sazon
1 lb. chicken tenderloins or 8 pieces chicken drumsticks, skin removed
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
6 oz. light beer
1 c. water
salt to taste
1/2 c. cilantro, chopped (ok to add more)
Heat saute pan, spray with a little bit of olive oil spray. Add green onions and garlic, saute 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and peppers. Season with salt, cumin and sazon, mix then set aside. Season chicken with salt and garlic powder. Add chicken to pan allowing chicken to brown lightly on both sides. Combine chicken with sofrito, then add beer, water and cilantro. Adjust salt if needed. Cover pan and simmer on low until chicken is cooked through, about 20-30 minutes.
