Cuban-Style Braised Chicken
This hearty braise is our Instant Pot take on the classic Cuban comfort food called fricasé de pollo. Dark meat chicken and potatoes are cooked in a tomato sauce flavored with garlic, capers and pimento-stuffed olives. Raisins add pops of sweetness to contrast the savory, briny ingredients. White wine is typical in fricasé de pollo, but we skipped it in favor of a little lime juice, added at the very end to lift and lighten the flavors. Serve with a side of rice—or better yet, rice and beans—and a simple salad to round out the meal.
tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
medium yellow onion, chopped
01On a 6-quart Instant Pot, select Normal/Medium Sauté. Heat the oil until shimmering, then add the onion and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, olives, raisins and capers, then cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 to 60 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes.
