Chile Chicken with Walnuts

May 05, 2017

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 ½ lbs. chicken parts such as breast, thighs, and legs
  • 2 - 4 dried aji amarillo chiles or 2 - 4 teaspoons aji powder
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp. walnuts
  • ½ cup soda crackers, crushed
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • ¼ tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. salt or to taste
  • 3 tbsp. corn oil
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric
  • 2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 ½ lb. potatoes, cooked in skin, peeled and sliced lengthwise
  • 8 black olives
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and quartered
  • Directions:

    1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot. Add the chicken pieces, and simmer over moderate heat for 20 minutes.
    2. Remove the chicken, cool, and tear into strips or threads. Reserve the broth.
    3. If using Aji pods, remove the stems, and soak the pods in very hot water for 20 minutes or until soft.
    4. In a food processor or blender, combine the aji, garlic, onion and ¼ cup water and process to a paste. Remove to a bowl.
    5. In the processor or blender, combine the walnuts, crackers, milk, oregano and salt and blend until smooth.
    6. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the onion and aji pepper mixture and stir-fry until golden over low heat. Add the turmeric and stir another minute.
    7. Add 2 cups of the reserved broth, chicken strips, and Parmesan cheese and bring to a boil.
    8. Add the evaporated milk mixture and cook, stirring constantly over low heat for 5 minutes. It should be smooth and easy to pour. If too thick, add more broth until you have reached the desired consistency.
    9. To serve, place the potato slices in the middle of a serving platter or individual plates. Pour the chicken with sauce over them. Garnish with black olives and hard boiled eggs. Serves 6-8

    Adapted from The Exotic Kitchens of Peru by Copeland Marks The soda crackers in this recipe are used as a thickener for this delightful sauce. Boneless chicken breasts and canned chicken broth can be substituted for the chicken parts and water, just cube the chicken and brown until cooked through, then add the sauce, and thin as required with chicken broth.

    Awesome Sauce and Amazing Service!

    Everything was perfect! Ordering, delivery and the final product!

    Awesome saices

    My husband loves the mustard and bbq sauce. You are the only place we could find it!

    Roasted pineapple habanero dip

    This dip/jelly is the best I’ve ever eaten. I highly recommend this to everyone if you like a little heat! Fabulous on smoked cheddar and crackers and burgers too ! The list goes on

    Best sauce in the game

    the best sauce, the perfect balance of flavours and kick, a slight tex-mex flavour but that also doesnt have too big of a flavour profile to not go on asian dishes etc. This sauce goes amazing on everything!! (EVEN ICE CREAM!) Seriously, I've tried every popular hot sauce on the market, from tabasco to pain 100 passing by sriracha and Blair's Mega Death, AND THIS IS THE WINNER! Will never get tired of this sauce, Secret Aardvark has made a loyal customer, and so has Chilly Chiles! (If youre reading this review and live in canada buy from chilly chiles!! they have amazing shipping, the best prices i have found and much more.)

    Asian Sauceee

    Great sauce, amazing flavour and just the right amount of kick, it would be amazing in ramen, on grilled pork and most thai/viet/chinese dishes, i think its a little tiny bit too sweet though, still very enjoyable though.
