Instead of tomato sauced used a jar of sofrito. Super delish!

Czwiz, it can be done in a slow cooker and on the stove. I haven't done it in the slow cooker before just make sure to keep the heat low and watch it until tender. Enjoy.

I've put this on my try list because it sounds great. I don't own a pressure cooker. Could this be done in a slow cooker?

I used beef Sazon instead of goya, didn't have peppers, but it came out deeerlicious. So quick too with pressure cooker, loved it.

I didn't have a pressure cooker so I modified the recipe to make on a stovetop in a Dutch oven. I browned the chicken in the oil, sauteed the vegetables and added the remaining ingredients and simmered over very low heat about 3+ hours, until the meat was falling off the bone. Also I couldn't find the Goya seasoning at my supermarket in Chicago so I substituted 1 T. Ancho chili powder...not sure that was authentic, The chicken stew was GREAT. We really enjoyed it...served it with beans and rice, and some fried plantains. I was looking for something I could cook slowly on an afternoon when I had many errands immediately before dinner. This fit the bill well. I bet it would also work in a slow cooker.

I cooked it for my wife, who is from Cuba and she said it was almost as good as her abuelita's!
