Number of Servings: 4

4 Pound(s) Frying chicken
1 Leek, trimmed washed
and chopped
1 Onion, peeled chopped
1 Carrot, peeled chopped
1 Tomato, chopped
2 Teaspoon(s) Coarse Salt
1 Tablespoon(s) Peppercorns
2 Bay leaves
2 Cup(s) Soft bread crumbs
1 Cup(s) Milk
1/2 Cup(s) Olive oil
2 Onions, finely chopped
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 Teaspoon(s) Ground cumin
1 Tablespoon(s) Yellow Aji, Amarillo or
Chile powder
1/3 Cup(s) Finely-chopped or ground
1 Cup(s) Grated parmesan cheese
2 Pound(s) Small potatoes, boiled
and halved
4 Hard-boiled eggs, halved
Chopped parsley, for garnish
Place chicken in a large pot and fill with water to halfway up sides
of bird. Add leek, onion, carrot, tomato, salt, peppercorns and bay
leaves. Cover, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 45
minutes, or until chicken is done. Remove chicken and place in a bowl
until cool enough to remove the meat from the bones and shred into
bite-size pieces. Meanwhile, strain broth and reserve 4 cups. Soak the
bread in the milk. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add
the onions and saute until soft and golden, about 10 minutes. Add the
garlic and cumin and saute for 1 more minute. Add softened bread and
aji or chile powder, and cook for about 1 minute, stirring. (For a
creamier sauce, place onion-bread mixture in a blender, puree until
smooth and return to skillet.) Add 2 cups of the chicken stock and
continue cooking until sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon,
about 5 minutes. Add the chicken and simmer for 5 to 8 more minutes,
adding more stock if needed. Stir in the walnuts and Parmesan cheese,
and simmer gently for another 5 minutes, or until thickened slightly.
To serve, spoon chicken and sauce onto a serving platter and surround
with potatoes and eggs. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. This recipe
yields 4 to 6 servings. Recipe Source: TOO HOT TAMALES with Susan
