    AGUADITO DE POLLO / Chicken stew with green rice     

   Ingredients :
1 tender chicken
˝ cup vegetable oil
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 cup chopped onion
ľ cup coriander leaves chopped and blended with Ľ cup water
ľ cup peas
Ground Fresh yellow/ají amarillo
1 tablespoon paprika
˝ cup black beer
8 medium size yellow potatoes (if available) peeled and cut in halves
1 cup rice
1 red pepper cut in strips
1 small leek
6 celery stalks
6 ˝ cups chicken broth
Cumin to taste
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste


Clean chicken and cut into pieces.

Make a broth by boiling gently for two hours: 10 cups water, 2 tablespoons salt, head, legs and spine from chicken, add leek and celery cut into large pieces.

Season chicken and fry in hot oil until golden and tender (it doesnt have to be thoroughly cooked).

Remove from pan and save, covered. In the same oil, sauté the garlic, chopped onion and aji or chilli paste. Add the blended coriander, salt and pepper.

Transfer this to a large pan. Add broth, black beer, and the chicken pieces.

Finally add peas and red pepper. Cook 8 to 10 minutes more (this can be done in advance).

Fifteen minutes before serving bring the mixture to boil, incorporate rice and mix it well with a wooden spoon. Lower heat and cover pan to continue cooking. Five minutes before rice is done add yellow potatoes. If the mixture becomes too thick add some broth or water. The ideal consistency is that of a thick soup.
