Cilantro is one of those ingredients that people either love or hate, and I happen to love it.  This Puerto Rican Chicken stew is a hearty, warm dish perfect for a cold dish and made with a cilantro sofrito.  It is perfect by itself or you could serve it over some brown rice.  I make it with dark and white meat chicken, but you could also use skinless drumsticks instead of the chicken breast.  This recipe was adapted from a Food and Wine recipe to be made weight watchers friendly.

1

In a blender, combine the jalapenos, onions, cilantro, cumin, salt, pepper, garlic, red pepper, green pepper, and a little water and blend until smooth.

2

Pour the blended sauce into the crockpot and add your chicken. Cook on high for 2 hours or until the chicken is mostly cooked through.Add chicken broth as needed if the sauce becomes too thick or dries up. You likely won’t need very much.

3

Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper as needed.

4

Add the potatoes to the crockpot under and around the chicken and make sure they are covered completely by the sauce. Cover and continue to cook on high for 30-45 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through.

5

Serve in bowls and consider adding a little bit of fresh squeezed lime juice.
