I learned this recipe when visiting my Colombian family members in Houston, Texas. The sauce that the chicken cooks in is chock full of flavor. Cumin, curry, black pepper, turmeric, pimenton (paprika), and seasoning salt make the chicken's sauce tasty enough to lick your plate! Serve with rice.

  • Submerge chicken thighs, skin side down, half way into broth mixture; stir to coat chicken. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until chicken is no longer pink, about 40 minutes.

  • Stir potatoes into the chicken mixture until mostly submerged; check that chicken thighs are still skin side down. Bring to a boil; cover. Reduce heat; simmer until potatoes are soft and chicken is cooked through, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

Skinless chicken thighs can be substituted for chicken thighs with skin.

this was very good. i had everything on hand to make. i substituted sweet potatoes for the white potatoes. it smelled wonderful while cooking. i cooked in the crockpot and added the peppers the last hour of cooking. with all of the spices used it really did give the chicken a lot of flavor. after plating it was discovered that by shredding the chicken really did soak up a lot of the liquid. i could see using this recipe and method to make chicken for tacos or the like. thanks for the recipe Tasty and Aunt Dora!
