A twist on a Latin American classic, this Picadillo Chicken uses tender simmered chicken with a little touch of sweetness from raisins. Serve over rice and top with slivered almonds and a generous sprinkling of Sargento® Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese

  2. Brown chicken, skin side down, in hot oil in large skillet 5 minutes over medium heat; turn. Add onion and garlic; cook 5 minutes more. Add stewed tomatoes with liquid, tomato sauce, raisins, jalapeños, cumin and cinnamon; heat to a boil.
