  • Summary

    Rich and elemental, this stew-like soup is similar to the rustic sancochos found in home-style Latin American restaurants. Traditionally, the chicken is cooked in the soup and then taken out and served on the side. For authentic accompaniments, try white rice cooked in chicken stock and a basic green salad with Russian dressing.

    Ingredients

    • 1 whole chicken (about 4 pounds), cut into pieces (including back)
    • 8 cups water
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 2 medium white onions, thinly sliced
    • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 6 canned whole peeled tomatoes, finely chopped (1 cup)
    • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro (2 cups packed)
    • 1 serrano chile, thinly sliced (optional)
    • 4 medium carrots, sliced 1/2 inch thick
    • 1 medium yuca (8 ounces), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
