How to make a red salsa for your stewed chicken

Get the perfect texture and flavor for that red sauce you love in your stewed chicken

The same way tacos without tortillas aren’t tacos, stewed chicken isn’t stewed chicken without red salsa. That’s why knowing how to season and prepare a good red salsa is essential so that your stewed chicken is out of this world. You’ll find everything you need to know here.

Ingredient selection. This step is key so that your salsa comes out perfectly. It’s important that you always pick fresh ingredients and you rinse them well before preparing the salsa.

Ingredient preparation. Start by peeling the onion, carrots, and garlic. Then, cut up the onion into small pieces and the rest of the ingredients into medium slices. It’s recommended that the bell pepper is cut 'julienne' style, which consists of long thin strips. This will prevent them from falling apart and dissolving in the salsa when cooking. The mixture of all these vegetables will be the base for a red sauce with the perfect texture and unique flavor.

The cooking process and the flavor of the ingredients. This is where you will see the final result. Cook the sliced vegetables for about 5 minutes in the leftover oil in the pan in which you sautéed the chicken. To completely bring out the unique flavor of your recipe, add a teaspoon of Knorr® Tomato Bouillon with Chicken Flavor.

Once you cook all the ingredients, add 2 cans of sliced tomatoes, this will give the salsa that touch of red color. Add the chicken and cover the pan for about 30 minutes so your ingredients release their juices and combine to get that savory red salsa aroma and flavor.

Besides the red salsa for your stewed chicken, there are other salsa recipes that you’ll absolutely love, like the one used to make Chipotle Chicken Stew, with a unique and spicy touch. You have to try it!
