Pollo en escabeche

I like a lot “atun en escabeche” but it is really difficult to find. And to make it, quite expensive… So during a conversation, a friend of mine, mentioned “pollo en escabeche” as vey tasty dish with similar flavour to “atun en escabeche”. So I decided to give it a go and find a recipe. This one looked very good.


  • 400g chicken breast
  • 1 big onion sliced
  • 2 large carrots sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic
    • 1 glass of white wine
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 15 pepper corns
    • 1 glass of vinegar (white wine, apple, etc)
    • 1 glass of water
    • salt + pepper


  • Salt and pepper the chicken breasts.
  • Fry the chicken in a hot pan until golden outside. Put apart.
  • In the same pan, add the onions, carrots and garlic. Fry until soften, aprox 4-5 minutes.
  • Add glass of wine, bay leaf and pepper corns. Keep the high heat so the alcohol evaporates.
  • Then add the glass of vinegar and water.
  • Add the chicken back in.
  • Cook at high heat for 15 minutes so the liquid evaporates a bit and the chicken absorbs some juice.
  • Remove from the heat and pout the content of the pan into a glass dish.
