    Niki D's Note:

    This is my boyfriend's favorite dish. He is originally from the west coast, and now lives on the east coast. You really can't find this dish in restaurants on the east coast, so I decided to make it for him. I found ONE recipe for it on the internet ,and it wasn't very good. So I called the restaurant he used to get it at, and asked for the recipe. They gave me a few hints but kept the rest confidential. SO between what they told me, and what I found on this site I made up my own version. Hope you like it!

      This is good stuff! I don't know if I've had Mexican food that can top this recipe!

      Terrific recipe! I haven't had Pollo Fundido in 20 yrs. since my sis moved away from a town that had an insanely good Mexican restaurant. It's true that this would be greater with shredded chicken, but the diced works and is quicker (to me.) I almost doubled the sauce part of the recipe since my family LOVES saucy foods, and I was out of jalapenos so I just used a tablespoon or so of green Tabasco in the sauce. I also used about double the spices in the filling because we like spice and flavor. My 2 and 3 year old boys ate EVERYTHING and asked for more. I'll be making this again and again!

      I'm used to having shredded chicken instead of the chunks of chicken. The filling was kind of bland, but this is still the closest recipe that I've found thus far. Next time I'll use less veggies in the filling, make shredded chicken, and use more seasonings.
