I just wanted to share a quick and easy chicken dish that I made last week. Delicious!
What you'll need:
10-12 chicken thighs (bone-in, skin removed, fat trimmed)
15 oz. can crushed tomatoes (substitute diced or whole plum tomatoes for a chunkier sauce)
3 cups carrots
2 green bell peppers
1 cup sofrito
What to do:
Remove the skin from the chicken thighs, trim any visible fat, rinse and pat dry. You may use bone-in chicken breast with the skin removed for a leaner cut that still has a lot of flavor. Next, heat a dry Dutch-oven or deep cast-iron pan over high flame until very hot. Place the chicken flesh-side down and let it sear undisturbed until it starts to pull away from the pan, 3-5 minutes. Don't overcrowd the pan. Flip the chicken with a pair of tongs and sear for another 2 minutes then remove the meat and set aside.
