We enjoyed this quite a lot.i used unsweetened orange juice,low sodium chicken broth and no salt.We also used skinless,boneless chicken thighs.Thanks

A perfectly reasonable stewed chicken. A quiet recipe, but really nice.

I first had this in a Salvadoran restaurant near DC and loved it. They used only chicken breasts and I believe they substituted lime for lemon juice.

Delicious! We loved this one. The chicken was moist and flavorful and the onions were to die for.
