estofado de pollo

So tonight for dinner I made a dish called estofado de pollo and I would have to say this is one of my best!! It was also easy to make and easy to prep for this meal. The only bad thing about it was that when I went out tonight I smelled of onions from cooking all day... ATTRACTIVE...NOT! but the dish was attractive :) This dish is a Peruvian recipe I came across in a Travel magazine...YUM!ESTOFADO DE POLLO Recipe

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen sliced carrots
