Before the Colombian food police come after me, let me say that I am a United States citizen, born in Miami, Florida. My mom’s family is from Colombia and this is my interpretation of a Colombian chicken stew. 😀
My mom was born in a small municipality called Cienaga, Colombia – but I have family in Bogota as well. I have visited numerous times as a child and I have been to Cienaga, Baranquilla, Santa Marta and Bogota. I had traditional Colombian Chicken stews as a child – but I couldn’t remember, so I called my grandmother and she told me this would suffice! 😛
You will LOVE this recipe! I will go as far to say that I think those people who don’t like cilantro, might still really love this dish. It is just packed with so much flavor and a stew is really comforting. The potatoes soak up all that delicious chicken flavor and broth, so they melt in your mouth. Traditionally, it can be served with white rice as well – but obviously not necessary since the potatoes are your starch.
Please tag me on social media @thekoshertomato if you make this!!
