Ají de Gallina
Ají de Gallina is a minced chicken dish, served on a bed of rice. A gallina is hen (female chicken), but most Peruvians use regular chickens instead (as gallina meat is tastier, but more expensive, smaller, harder, takes longer to cook).
Recipe for Ají de Gallina
- Minced chicken is combined with sauce made of aged bread mixed with hot evaporated milk (made with either water or the chicken broth), diced onions, ají amarillo, garlic, and pecans.
- In pot, boil papa blancas (white potatoes), strain, peel, combine with the minced chicken mix, and serve with rice.
Garnish with half a hardboiled egg and a black olive.
- Some people add parmesan cheese to the whole mix to improve the taste
