Full recipe at

Utensils needed:

  • 5 medium size chicken breasts (if the chicken breasts are bigger than 1 portion, cut them in half)
  • 4 ozs aji amarillo paste or aji panca paste (aji amarillo will be a lot spicier than aji panca so adjust accordingly)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.5 tsp black pepper
  • 0.5 tsp cumin (Cumin can be strong for a lot of people, so go slow on cumin. You can always add more later.)
  • 2 medium size potatoes
  • 4 tbsps olive oil (2 tbsps of olive oil will be used for the sauce and 2 tbsps for the fresh salsa with tomatoes)
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 0.5 medium size onion
  • 0.5 cup green peas
  • 2 tbsps freshly chopped parsley (optional for decoration and aroma)
