Pollo Borracho Recipe

The name of this Mexican chicken recipe translates roughly to "Roast Chicken Drunkard Style" and it is one of my all-time favorite ways to prepare chicken. This recipe has an aromatic sauce flavored with sesame seeds, cinnamon, cloves, bay leaf, olives, green chiles, and wine.

Pollo Borracho Ingredients
- 3 pound chicken cut into 8 pieces
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- 1-1/2 onion cut into rings
- 1/6 cup of fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
- 2 whole peppercorns
- 1/2 inch piece of cinnamon stick
- 1/8 teaspoon of cloves
- 1 small bay leaf
- 1 tablespoon of vinegar
- 1/4 cup of wine
- 8 green olives stuffed with pimentos
- 2 mild Anaheim green chiles (type used by Ortega)

Pollo Borracho Instructions
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Pour the oil into a Dutch oven and brown the chicken pieces on all sides. Set the chicken aside and add to the Dutch oven the onion rings, fresh parsley, sesame seeds, peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves, and bay leaf. Cook them together until the onion is tender. Return the chicken pieces to the pan and add the vinegar, wine, olives, and green chiles. Cover and bake at 275 degrees F for about 2.5 hours. (I cook it that long because I like this recipe slow roasted until it is fork tender. If you don't want a pot roasted style chicken you can cook the chicken in the Dutch oven on top of the stove for abut 45 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink near the bone.)
