One popular dish from the Dominican Republic is “Pollo Guisado,” which is a flavorful Dominican stewed chicken. Here’s a concise version of the recipe:


  • 1.5 kg chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1 potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)


  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot. Sauté until they become translucent and fragrant.
  3. Add the chicken pieces to the pot and cook until browned on all sides.
  4. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, sliced bell pepper, sliced carrot, and diced potato. Cook for a few minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the tomato paste, dried oregano, ground cumin, and paprika. Add this mixture to the pot and stir well to coat the chicken and vegetables.
  6. Pour in the chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and let it simmer for about 30-40 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
  8. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  9. Serve Pollo Guisado hot, garnished with fresh chopped cilantro or parsley if desired. It pairs well with rice, beans, and/or plantains.
