Chicken Sauce Piquante

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 448


4 pounds chicken, cut in pieces
1 cup oil
2 cups chopped onions
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 (16-ounce) can whole tomato
1 (16-ounce) can tomato juice
5 cups water
1 (4-ounce) can mushrooms
1 teaspoon sugar
4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 Salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper
1/2 cup chopped green onion and parsley


Season chicken and fry in oil in heavy, covered iron pot. Stirring occasionally, cook about 1/2 hour or until chicken becomes tender. Take chicken out of pot and set aside. Add onions, celery, and bell pepper to oil and cook slowly until onions are wilted. Add whole tomatoes, tomato juice, and water. Cook over medium heat until oil floats above tomatoes, or about 25 minutes.

Add chicken, mushrooms, sugar, and chopped garlic. Season to taste with salt, black pepper, and cayenne, leaning heavily on the cayenne to give the sting (which is piquante). Cook for 20 minutes. Add green onions and parsley. Serve over steamed rice.
