Pollo con Chile Rojo

Ingredients
2
tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2
cup chopped onion (1 medium)
3
2
tablespoons ancho chili powder
1
tablespoon paprika
1
tablespoon ground cumin
1
15 ounce can tomato sauce
1
cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1
teaspoon dried Mexican oregano or regular oregano
 
Salt
 
Freshly ground black pepper
1
pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat and patted dry

Directions

  1. Position rack in center of oven; preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large oven proof skillet with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in ancho chili powder, paprika, and cumin; cook and stir for 1 minute more (if necessary, reduce heat to prevent spices from burning).
  3. Add tomato sauce, broth, and oregano to skillet; bring mixture to boiling. Sprinkle salt and pepper on all sides of chicken; nestle chicken in the tomato mixture. Cover skillet with lid; place skillet in the oven.
  4. Bake chicken about 40 minutes or until tender, turning chicken pieces once halfway through baking time. Remove chicken from tomato mixture; set aside to cool slightly.
  5. Place skillet with tomato mixture on range top over medium heat. Simmer tomato mixture, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally (mixture may spatter as it thickens; reduce heat as necessary). Remove pan from heat.
  6. Cut chicken into bite-size strips. Return chicken to tomato mixture, stirring to coat.

From the Test Kitchen

Test Kitchen Tip:

If you prefer, use skinless, boneless chicken breasts instead of thighs. Halve each breast half and decrease the baking time to about 30 minutes or bake chicken until tender.
