Chicken Veracruz is a tender, tangy Mexican-style chicken that simmers in GOYA® Tomato Sauce and GOYA Pickled Jalapeño Peppers.

 

This main course, from Mexico’s Veracruz region, was first conceived with red snapper and gets an update for families that love new combinations of chicken and Mexican flavors.
