1 (3 pound)
chicken, cut into parts
bay leaf, crumbled
extra virgin olive oil
guero chile peppers, chopped
jalapeno peppers, chopped
pitted black olives
This was just wonderful!!!
the yellow pepper (guerro) added a nice spice to the sauce, however the seaseame seeds be very carefull in warming them, I reccomend 2 min I a found out the seeds are what set the sauce a success or failure,so I reccomend 2 min max so that the oils in seeds are released... no roasting required!!.. was not a big hit in my Mexican family.... something is missing its to grainy for my taste.
This is not a bad recipe but it just didn't knock our socks off. The color is not very appetizing. With some tinkering, it might be a decent filling for a burrito.
pretty good, nice flavors.
Delicious, and very colourful. Loved it.
Very tasty. I concur with everyone on the color. It's a strange off white color. Not traditional to pipian. It's usually green or orangish. I looked up other pipian recipes, and discovered the missing ingredient. However I made this discovery mid recipe. So I cooked a carrot and puréed it with a small amount of the chicken broth. It did the trick & tasted great. Next time I will add two carrots as you cook the chicken. Then I'll purée the carrots separately & add them to the sauce for color. You definitely need a lot more water then the recipe calls for and a bit more salt. I'll also probably use a little less peppers and purée them as well. Less peppers because the spicy ness will come out more when they're puréed. It just seemed strange to me to have chunks in the sauce. All the times I've eaten this dish before, it straight sauce. It's a lot of work, but delicious. I'll definitely make it again.
