Chicken Ropa Vieja

Chicken Ropa Vieja
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 1 tomato, quartered
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup tomato puree
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin, or to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place chicken, onion, tomato, carrot, and 2 cloves of garlic into a large pot. Add water to cover, then bring to a boil. Skim and discard the foam that has floated to the surface. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered until the chicken is tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Place the chicken into a bowl and shred it into strips as thick as a pencil; set aside. Strain the cooking liquid and discard the vegetables.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, onions, green peppers, and red peppers. Cook and stir until the vegetables have softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in tomato puree, white wine, chicken, and enough of the reserved broth to create a thick sauce. Season with cumin, salt, and pepper. Simmer for about 5 minutes more to reduce the sauce slightly and coat the shredded chicken.
