About the Recipe: The winning flavor of this dish marries the chicken to flavorful ingredients, coconut, Mexican chorizo, cilantro, and lime. Braising in a cast-iron pan, the taste invites you to an outstanding lightly spiced South American dining experience.
Recipe inspired by Chef C.J. Jacobson – This fragrant chicken stew is a mash-up of Central and South American ingredients that Top Chef Winner C.J. Jacobson came across while traveling.
Cook’s Note: His original recipe used 6 whole chicken legs and some larger ingredient quantities. I prepared smaller servings using only chicken thighs. If desired, remove chicken skin and some of the excess fat from the finished dish.
- To make part of the recipe ahead of time. The braised chicken can be refrigerated overnight. Reheat gently.
- A suggested paring: serve with fragrant berry-scented light bodied red wine.
