Pollo Salteado | Delish D'Lites

Boy, am I excited to share this blog post with you all! This recipe is super close to my heart, because it reminds me of when I first met my darling Puerto Rican & Colombian husband, 8 years ago (wow, time sure does fly!)  I’ve previously written about my love for all things Colombian, especially when it comes to the food.  This is a cuisine that comforts the soul and warms the belly, thanks to the delicate balance of sweet and savory flavors and aromatic spices.  Pollo Salteado (translation: Sauteed Chicken) is a dish I’ve encountered in many Colombian restaurants, and it features strips of chicken, bell pepper, onion (and sometimes french fries!) robed in a sweet and tangy tomato-based sauce.  My pollo salteado recipe is inspired by my hubby’s favorite dish from our favorite Colombian restaurant here in NJ, and is a family-friendly dish that literally comes together in 15 minutes (or less!), perfect for busy weeknights.

Many authentic Hispanic dishes call for the use of tomatoes, and this dish is no exception.  Fresh, natural and quality ingredients are a way of life for Latinas like me, a tradition passed down from my mother and grandmother, so Hunt’s all-natural tomato sauce is the only choice for me.  All of Hunt’s® tomato products have no artificial preservatives and are 100% natural.  Their tomatoes are grown in sunny California – a perfect climate for the reddest, juiciest tomatoes that provide the best ingredients for Hunt’s all-natural Tomato Sauce.  Hunt’s all-natural tomato sauce  is the star of this dish, and creates a velvety sauce that coats the chicken and veggies, and soaks into rice (yum!).  It’s so good, I insist you go make this, like now. Just be warned, you might even find yourself licking the plate.

Pour the marinade over the chicken, then close the bag and swish the chicken around to coat it in the marinade.  If you have the time, marinate the chicken overnight. If you’re pressed for time, don’t worry, you can proceed right to the next step.
