Columbian Style Chicken

This fun recipe was inspired by Erica's blog My Colombian Recipes one of my all time favorite. It had an interesting onion sauce with Worcester sauce, I tweaked it a little to add tomatoes and mushrooms to make more sauce, all in all a great dish.


  • 4 chicken legs 
  • one onion chopped
  • 8 mushrooms
  • 4 cloves of garlic 
  • one tablespoon of butter
  • a little olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • one cup of chicken stock 
  • salt and pepper to taste 
  • 3 chopped tomatoes 

  1. saute the chicken in the butter, salt and pepper to brown for 4-5 minutes and then keep to one side
  2. saute the onion, garlic for 2 minutes
  3. add the mushrooms, and tomatoes, cumin, Worcestershire sauce and stock and let it reduce down a little
  4. add the chicken back to the pot and simmer for 30 minutes 
  5. serve with rice or pasta would work well
Have a wonderful start to the week everyone
