Pollo en Fricase (Chicken in Wine Sauce)

Pollo en Fricase (Chicken in Wine Sauce)
  (Serves 4)
  • 3 lbs. chicken pieces bone in, skinned
  • 3 tsp. adobo
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. vinegar
  • 3 Tbs. garlic, mashed
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 cup sofrito (12 cubes)
  • 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup  red wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 8 olives stuffed with red peppers
  • 3 potatos, peeled and chopped
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • salt to taste

Combine first 5 ingrediants, seasoning chicken ahead of time and refrigerate until needed.  (I refrigerate mine at least 30 minutes, but usually overnight if I think far ahead enough. :) )

In a large heavy pot heat 1 Tbs. olive oil, add chicken and cook  and brown on both sides. Remove from oil and set aside. In the same pot add the sofrito and cook for 3 minutes or so. Return the chicken to the pot with the rest of the ingredients, season to taste, cover and cook over medium heat for 35 minutes until the chicken is tender.

Serve over white rice.
