Chicken with chayote squash and potato casserole recipe

Almost all of us like chicken, right? Cooked, fried, grilled... It doesn't matter how it's done we eat it all the time. So, here's a great Brazilian dish for you to enjoy.

INGREDIENTS:

1 pound of chicken thighs or legs
1/2 pound of potatoes
5 chayote squashes
1 small onion
1 small green pepper
1 small tomato
1 or 2 tablespoons of salt (you decide)
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 teaspoon of grounded black pepper
1/4 of canola oil
1 cup of water
Fresh scallions
Fresh parsley

DIRECTIONS:

Clean your chicken and take the skin off. Chop the tomato, onion, green pepper, scallions and parsley together. 
Peel your potatoes and chayote squashes and cut them in small pieces.
Once it's all done put in your cooking pan, adding the salt, water, oil, black pepper and garlic.

Cook in a small burning fire until your chicken gets soft, as well as your potatoes and chayotes.

A GREAT TIP FOR YOU: Make sure that you peel your chayote squash under running water.

NOTE: The picture that you see here has nothing to do with my recipe, as it just shows chicken with potatoes.

Now you have a delicious dish to enjoy and share with your family and friends.

    Looks delicious! My mother recently cooked with chayote (she grew up in El Salvador) and it wasn't strange at all. It was a pleasant accompaniment to the zucchini and mushrooms she had sauteed.

    I look forward to reading more of your stuff, Paulo. I'm glad I found you on the comments of Virginia Kahler-Anderson :)

    Thank you for joining in, Amelia! Yes. I also grew up in Brazil eating chayote squash almost every day and that's why I love it, too. Thanks for the comment!

  • Hi Paulo! I guess we are still dealing with some quirks on Examiner. I actually came a couple of days ago and left a message, and I see now that it is NOT showing. Sorry! I'm glad I came to check. Lol!

    Well, I grew up eating chayote, but all I remember is having it in chicken soup. My mother and grandmother always used it. I've only recently started using it again. I don't know why I haven't done it sooner. It is sweet and delicious. My son described it between a potato and a pear! Great stuff here, Paulo :)
