“This is really an awesome way to make chicken. I always get rave reviews when I make it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium sauce pan, add the oil heat at medium-high for two minutes.
  2. Add onion, garlic, serrano pepper, picante sauce, yogurt, salt, pepper, and turmeric powder. Stir constantly and steam until the onions caramelize and it becomes like a sauce. Cook on medium uncovered for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add the cubes of chicken and 1/2 cup water. Cover the pot and let it steam for 25 minutes. Stir Occasionally so that the chicken doesn't stick to the bottom. Keep the burner on medium-low.
  4. Now add the celantro and let it steam covered for another 10 minutes on low heat.
  5. This chicken is best served wrapped in tortilla's. I prefer wheat tortillas but flour is just as good. Have some cream cheese and salsa or sour cream on the side as a dip. You can also try serving the chicken with rice.
