Pollo Guisado | Stewed Chicken

This is a partnered post with Mirum. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I thoroughly enjoy getting in the chicken and creating something delicious for friends and family. What’s even better though,  is when my family gets in the kitchen with me and we make it a fun, family activity.

Just last weekend the hubby and I had a wonderful time making Pollo Guisado, also known as Stewed Chicken, for our family and friends. We got the recipe from Knorr and doubled it to make it enough to feed everyone.

You can make a delicious, flavorful Pollo Guisado with just a few fresh ingredients from your grocery store and Knorr bouillon cubes.

As with almost every single recipe I recreate, I never follow the directions completely. Most of the time it’s either because we don’t have that ingredient at home, or someone in the family doesn’t like it. This time, however, it was because I forgot the carrots at the store.

But even without the carrots, we love Pollo Guisado!

What I really love about making Pollo Guisado is how easy it is to make. There’s no fancy equipment required or any incredible skills needed — just simple, fresh ingredients and Knorr Tomato Bouillon with Chicken Flavor. Knorr Bouillon Cubes and granulated bouillon in dishes brings about the best flavor, y’all.

    Pollo guisado is one of my favorite Latin dishes. I love how the chicken meat literally falls off the bone from being stewed in delicious juices.

    That chicken looks so good! I love Knorr Bouillon Cube. Always have some in my kitchen.

    I was just trying to think of something good to make for dinner tonight that we don’t always make and then I happened across this… Coincidence? I think not. 🙂 Knorr is good for so many things, isn’t it?? I love that brand.
