Chicken with Cassava

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

This is a super hearty dish, the cassava is super starchy and if you don't like the taste of cassava, just feel free to substitute for potatoes, it works just fine too. Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

1 lb. chicken breast, boneless and skinless
1/2 white onion, diced
2 roma tomatoes, diced
18 oz. bag frozen cassava (I used Goya's), thawed and chopped
Handful of chopped parsley
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 cups chicken stock
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
Salt and black pepper

Cut chicken into bit size pieces, season with salt and black pepper. In a large pot, heat the oil over high heat. Add the chicken, cook completely. Add the turmeric and diced onions, sauté for a couple of minutes until the onions are translucent. Add the diced tomatoes and let it cook until breaks down a little bit. Add the cassava and pour the chicken stock, bring to a boil. Allow to cook until the cassava is tender. Add the parsley. Serve hot with some white rice and enjoy!
