Pollo Boracha – Agentinian Drunken Chicken
Pollo Boracha – Agentinian Drunken Chicken stewed in wine and garlic is a delicious meal for dinnertime any day of the week.
I am so happy to be rejoining the Blogging Marathon group after a few months of hiatus. The theme of South & Central American foods I picked for this week is perfect since I just came back from Mexico two days ago. Stay tuned for some posts about my Mexican trip.
I am all about exploring the countries of South America this week. If you are looking for dessert ideas, be sure to check out Picarones – Peruvian Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Doughnuts and Sequilhos de Coco – Brazilian Gluten Free Coconut Cookies.
Today we have a simple but super flavorful chicken dish that is great to enjoy any day of the week!
With the salty and smoky flavors from the ham and capers, this is such a delicious chicken dinner!
