Pollo Rio Negro

What's the big idea?

It would be wrong to call this a chicken casserole, as there is very little liquid or sauce with it. The interesting combination of fresh fruity flavours and rich herbs and vegetables makes this well worth a try. Serve with boiled or roast potatoes.
NB: This dish is best prepared the day before, to allow time for marination.

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • About 2kg chicken pieces - breasts, drumsticks, thighs - up to you!
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 glass dry white wine
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons apple juice

What To Do

  • Wash the chicken, rub in the lemon juice and season well with salt and black pepper
  • Place in a glass baking dish and add the onion, carrots, bay leaf, rosemary and wine
  • Cover with foil and refrigerate for 24 hours
  • Pre-heat the oven to 375F
  • Place the baking dish, still covered with the foil, in the oven and bake for one hour
  • Meanwhile, grate the apple and mix with the sugar and apple juice
  • Remove the foil from the baking dish. Pour the apple mixture over the chicken
  • Return to the oven and continue cooking - uncovered - for 20 minutes
