“This is the authentic way to make Pollo Fricassee in Puerto Rico. You can either make in on the stove or in your slow cooker. It is delicious and very easy to make! Serve with white rice, tostones, and a nice salad. This tastes even better when you prepare the night before; just take it out of the refrigerator the next morning set it to cook.”
