Share it:

Pollo Guisado is a typical Puerto Rican and Dominican dish that is served over rice.

"Very tasty! I used capers instead of olives. I also used about 4 tablespoons of sofrito. I added more cilantro as well and minced garlic. To stew the chicken I used a slow cooker. I think the entire meal can be made easily in a slow cooker. It was good."
