Pollo Guisado (Puerto Rican Chicken Stew)

Pollo Guisado (Puerto Rican Chicken Stew)

There aren’t many things that can instantly trigger the nostalgia in me like a bowl of my mom’s pollo guisado.  This delicious one-pot chicken stew was a weekly staple in my home growing up, because it’s a simple recipe that comes together in no time, without a lot of drama.   Toss chicken and bunch of flavorful ingredients into a pot, cover and cook until the chicken is done.  It’s really that simple!
