Cuban Chicken Stew
This is an easy recipe using Trader Joe's Cuban Mojito Simmer Sauce. You can do this with many variations, but this is what I used:
1 jar Trader Joe's Cuban Mojito Sauce
3 chicken breasts, chopped in cubes
1/2 large onion, chopped in large chunks
2 peppers (I used red and yellow) chopped in large chunks
fresh pineapple chopped in bite sized chunks
Season the chicken with salt and pepper (I used a seasoned salt mix). Brown the chicken in a large pan that is coated with olive oil. Remove when browned on both sides.
Add the onion and pepper and a little more olive oil. Saute for about 5 minutes until softened. Return the chicken and add the sauce. Simmer until chicken is cooked, for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the fresh pineapple and cilantro.
Note: I like to serve it over brown rice.
