Nona’s Chicken Sofrito

Chicken Sofrito

Nona would make this traditional Sephardi chicken and potato stew every Pesach. As children, my siblings, my cousins and I would ask for it at every opportunity, but being a meal that takes some hours to make and rarely lasted more than a handful of minutes before being utterly devoured, she’d usually reserve it for special occasions or for Shabbat and Yom Tov.
