Chicken Pochero is a type of stew composed of chicken, sausage, vegetables, plantains, and tomatoes. The harmonious collaboration of different flavors makes this dish extra special. I love to have chicken pochero during cold seasons. Sipping the hot soup makes me feel warm and comfortable, while the indulging tastes makes my day complete.
This recipe is not very different from the Beef Pochero that we previously featured. Instead of using Chorizo de Bilbao, I opted for Chinese sausage. I also used plantains, instead of “Saging na Saba”.
