CHICKEN ROPA VIEJA

 

INGREDIENTS:

For the Slow Cooker:

  • 3 (22.5 oz) skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 1 tomato, quartered
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 bay leaves
  • kosher salt

To finish:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small onion, sliced long
  • 1 small green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • black pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place chicken, 1 onion, tomato, carrot, and 2 cloves of garlic into the slow cooker. Add just enough water to cover, add bay leaves and salt and cook high for 4 hours until the chicken is tender. When done, remove chicken and shred with two forks; set aside. Reserve the broth.
  2. In a large deep skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the remaining garlic, onions, green peppers, and red peppers. Cook about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft. Stir in the cooked chicken, tomato sauce, white wine, and about 3/4 cup of the reserved broth to create a sauce. Season with cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cover and simmer on low for about 8 to 10 minutes, adding more broth and seasoning if needed. Makes 4 cups.
