Pollo En Crema
Really tasty and simple to make!
Ingredients (this recipes makes 6-8 servings)
5-6 chicken breast
2 red peppers (the ones that look like green bell peppers)
Crema (Salvadorean/Honduran works best because the particular taste) (CANNOT use regular sour cream)
chicken broth (or mix 2 cups of hot water with chicken bouillon cube)
butter (about 3 tbsp or you can use olive oil)
First cut up your chicken breast into large chucks. Sprinkle tenderizer, salt, and any other seasonings you like to put when boiling your chicken. I usually cook my chicken in the crock pot so its ready when I get home from work. This is where I use the 2 cups of chicken broth and pour over the chicken in the crock pot. Then cut up the red peppers in long thin slices and saute them until tender in a little butter or olive oil, whichever you like best. Once the peppers have been sauteed then add the chicken pieces on top of the peppers. Then next pour approx. 2 cups of crema over top of your chicken and peppers. It will be coming out pretty thick, but as it simmers for a few minutes it will melt down around the chicken. Just let it simmer for about 15 minutes so the cream can melt down and get warm. Then you can serve over brown rice if you would like because generally this type of dish is served over a white rice, but I just had alone with some veggies and a side salad for a delicious BFC approved meal.
See pictures below for the step by step look of the meal.

Boiled Chicken Breast in crock pot
The type of crema I use which is purchased at a spanish grocery store, my hubby likes to shop at, but they also sell this in our area farmers market. Most grocery stores do sell a type of crema, but its not always as good as this brand. But you might just have to try what you can find. I live in an area where there is a big Hispanic population plus my hubby is from Honduras so I have easy access to this sorta of food. And spanish cuisine is one of my absolute favorite tastes and ways to cook!! =)
