How to cook


In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, sear chicken until golden brown, about 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.


In the same large pan, sauté onions until translucent, about 8 to 10 minutes. Season with a pinch of kosher salt.


Add the pureed chile to the onions and cook 2-3 minutes.


Return chicken to pan with onions, add chicken stock. Add another pinch of salt. Cover and allow to braise for about 25-30 minutes.


Add potatoes, cover, and cook another 15-20 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender.


Serve warm, over rice.
