This is one of my favorite Puerto Rican comfort food recipes. I didn't feel like babysitting my Pollo Guisado on the stove so I decided to try it out in my electric pressure cooker. I wanted to make something where I could just throw everything in and forget it. This is how I did it.
- 2 large chicken breast cut into 1" cubes
- 2 small red potatoes, peeled and diced into 1" cubes
- 1 red onion, diced
- 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1 tblsp dried oregano
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp Adobo powder (found in most supermarkets in the Spanish foods aisle)
- 3 tblsp Goya Sofrito (found in the Spanish section of the freezer aisle)
- 2 cans of chicken broth (not shown in picture)
- Dump everything into the pressure cooker.
- Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. (Your pressure cooker may be different than mine so please check your manufacturers manual). After the 20 minutes are up I turn off my pressure cooker and let the pressure naturally release for 20 minutes.
- Check for seasonings and add some salt if needed (the Adobo is mostly salt so I don't tend to put extra salt in my dishes when I use it.)
- If the stew seems too thin turn on the browning feature and cook with the top off until thickened, stirring constantly.
- Serve over rice.
