Baked Puerto Rican Chicken

Ready for a super simple Puerto Rican dish?

Perfect for a cold winter day when heating up the kitchen oven keeps everyone toasty.

Three ingredients.

Can you handle this?

Ingredients:

Place the chicken quarters in a 9×13 casserole dish.

Chicken quarters are very inexpensive. I paid less than $3 for all the chicken in this dish.

Generously sprinkle the tops of the chicken quarters with Sazon packets.

Sazon is a product made by Goya. You will find it on the Latin aisle of your grocery store. It comes in a box of 12 packets. Staple for Puerto Rican cooking.

Sprinkle each chicken quarter with Adobo Seasoning Salt.

Another Goya product and you’ll find it near the Sazon.

Both of these products are also used in my Puerto Rican Stew, so you’ll now have two recipes to make using these products.

Pop the casserole dish in a 350 degree oven, uncovered, for one hour for one hour and fifteen minutes.

When it is done you will be able to cut into the chicken and the juice run clear.

This is what it will look like when it comes out of the oven.

For my family, I separate the thighs and the legs. Little kids like the legs and bigger kids and adults like the thighs.

If you do not like the skin on the thighs, it comes off very easily once cooked.

Plate it up and dinner is done.

This chicken goes perfectly with Puerto Rican rice and a dinner salad.

    This is great– can’t wait to try it! I do something similar with Italian seasoning– just sprinkle them with rosemary, thyme, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper and sprinkle lightly some olive oil. Turns out real good.

    I’m a little late to the party..but I have a question: does it matter which Sazon you use for this dish? I have the one with cilantro and annato but noticed that use the one with saffron.
