Casa Alvarez Style Chicken Recipe

If you haven't tried Casa Alvarez' green chili, you're missing out! I've tried both the veggie & pork, & just can't get enough!


I was first introduced to Casa Alvarez by one of their brand representatives in a Whole Foods Market. She gave me a taste & shared a wonderful recipe - chicken, plantains, & Casa Alvarez Chile Verde. I decided to put my own spin on it, & here's how it went -

Ingredients

  • 1 package of Trader Joe's organic, boneless chicken thighs

  • 3 organic plantains

  • Casa Alvarez Chile Verde con Veggie

  • Trader Joe's Chile Lime Seasoning Blend

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • salt

  • pepper

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • olive oil

The Process

Marinate chicken 1 night before cooking:

  • trim fat from chicken thighs

  • season chicken (salt, pepper, Chile Lime Seasoning Blend)

  • crush & dice garlic

  • add 3 teaspoons olive oil

  • combine above ingredients in container & let sit overnight


Cook 24 hours after marinating:

  • slice & fry plantains in stove top skillet with butter + salt on medium heat (brown each side)

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • lay out marinated chicken thighs on a baking sheet & top with fried plantains

  • once oven is preheated, bake for 20 minutes

  • take out chicken + plantains, top with Casa Alvarez Chile Verde con Veggie

  • bake everything again for 10 minutes

  • after 10 minutes, let your meal cool & serve!


A big thank you to Casa Alvarez for creating such scrumptious, easy food! Oh, & did I mention they're local to Colorado! #LivingLaVidaVerde
