Great recipe. A bit time consuming because of making the shredded chicken but so delicious I've made it a few times now (and I'm very picky about recipes when they take over 45 minutes to make). Achiote powder was hard to find. You might look for it under Annatto seed instead if you can't find it (it's a bright red powder). This flavor is what really makes this dish, in my opinion.
I used oyster ear mushrooms and turmeric (it was all I had) and added shredded cabbage to the boil (for the fiber ;) ). I dipped a warm hard roll in it, added a light salad and some iced tea. More than a meal. I thought it was an excellent recipe and far better even than I expected.
This had a wonderful flavor. I couldnt find achiote powder so i used achiote paste and it didnt desolve well, but it was still very tasty. I think next time ill add a bit more broth because i like it a little more soupy. Im half filipino so this was a comforting and nostalgic dish.
