What’s for Dinner? Peruvian Style Chicken and Mashed Potatoes

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on June 4, 2010 0 Comments

I absolutely LOVED this dish! It’s definitely in the “favorites” now.

The Peruvian style mashed potato recipe can be found here: Causa

1 lb boneless skinless chicken tenderloins

1 T white vinegar

2 t paprika (I used smoked)

1 1/2 t cumin

1 t garlic powder

juice of 1/2 lemon

canola oil, divided

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup chicken broth

Combine vinegar, wine, spices, lemon juice, a little oil and salt and pepper in a large ziploc bag or other container with a tight fitting lid. Taste and adjust as desired. Toss with chicken til well coated. At this point you can marinate the chicken for a couple hours, or just cook immediately. I didn’t have time to do the marinade step, but next time I won’t skip it.
In a large frying pan, a little canola oil over medium high heat. Saute chicken til almost cooked through. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon and set aside to keep warm. Add broth to pan and bring to a rolling simmer. Cook for a few minutes, til sauce reduces.
Add chicken back to pan to heat through.
Serve chicken over Peruvian style mashed potatoes with dipping sauce, if using.


Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup mayo

2 T regular mustard

2 T fresh lime juice

salt to taste

In a small bowl, mix mayo, mustard, lime juice and salt to taste. Refrigerate til needed.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d972/d387/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
