Stews are a staple of my Hispanic comfort food repertoire. Every single region has them, no matter what time of the year. This particular dish features free range chicken breast braised in a tomato and jalapeno broth. As it cooks down, the sauce naturally thickens and develops a full, round flavor. Hints of spices and just enough heat are its main characteristics. The dish comes with flour tortillas, a wedge of lime, cilantro and slices of raw jalapenos (for those who-like me-enjoy a little extra heat!). I also add Summer squash & fresh peas. If the tortillas are not enough to soak up the flavors of the sauce, there's also a side of steamed basmati rice with it. Enjoy!

This dish was delicious layered with big, thick pieces of chicken and the freshest green peas. My family appreciated that additional condiments like jalapeno slices and cilantro came on the side so that everyone could choose how to dress their dish!

Worst food I ever ate!I literally trashed it after 2 bites.The stew had no flavor and tasted of raw tomato, the chicken was "under cooked" and no flavor-it was boiled chicken.I gave 1 rating because there is no negative rating to give.Spare yourself!

This dish is absolutely delicious but the photo is completely misleading. You'll get about 2/5ths of what's actually show in the photo (iow - if you think this is 'dinner' - you're wrong).

My husband loved this and said to give this a sold 5 stars! Tender meat, great taste, and perfect for those needing a little extra protein in their diet.

Sadly, this was a huge letdown. Not only was the chicken served as huge chunks of dry meat, the sauce tasted bland and stale. I'd still have given this 2 stars, had the rice not had a piece of a broken zipper in it! That ended the meal for me.

The dish looks nice but it was very bland. There were slices of jalapenos, so occasionally you would get a spicy bite. The chicken and broth were flavorless and required salt and hot sauce. I wonder if mine was made incorrectly?

Maybe someone else's was spicy, but this certainly was not, and the chicken was dry and tough. Would not re-order

My husband liked this dish and would order it again. Chicken was very tender and it had a nice amount of spice. I like that it was low-fat! We hope this dish stays on the menu so we can order it again!

Wonderful, fresh, flavorful. Lots of tender chicken and I loved the addition of peas to the sauce. Great as leftovers as well.

This was very good. Chicken was a bit dry (overcooked) which is why I am usually not a fan of chicken stew. Seasoning was very nice. My partner over heated my tortilla and made them leathery . Be kind to your tortillas.
5 Stars
Amazing! Possibly one of my favorite meals so far from Munchery! Tons of flavor but be prepared for some heat. Would order again in a heartbeat.
5 Stars
One of my favorite Munchery dishes - generously portioned with a great blend of spicy flavors. Excellent comfort food!
5 Stars
A generous portion with moist chicken and a flavorful sauce. I really enjoyed this with the tortillas. A few more slices of jalapeno would have been appreciated.
