Fricase de Pollo

Another day another recipe....or something along those lines. Today I decided to make something random that I hadn't ever cooked before so I went to the recipe book, closed my eyes and opened a page. Fricase de Pollo is what I saw first so off to the grocery me and my mom went to collect foods.

Here is what you will need:

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 large tomato
2 garlic cloves
2 bay leaves
1 tps dried oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup white wine
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 medium onion
12 pitted green olives
1 tbsp capers
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1 bell pepper
2 oz jar pimentos

Now firstly you need to chop up your tomato, garlic, onion, pepper and olives. I used a red pepper and I also used black olives as the green are too salty for me. After you do that put all the ingredients except the pimentos in a dutch oven...or a big pot like I did. Over medium heat, bring everything to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook until the chicken is cooked through. Drop the pimentos in and stir it all up. I made basmati rice as well to serve it with. Oh, I also put in a jar of tomato paste to thicken the sauce, I think it adds a little extra something.

Its rather pretty now isnt it?
