Having grown up in a family of healthful eaters, Lisa Bohon-Hock of Sacramento has always been interested in good nutrition. Her mother used to make this recipe with beef neck bones, but Bohon-Hock substitutes chicken breasts to keep fat at a minimum. She always serves the pozole with a vegetable (squash is a winter favorite) and tortillas, quesadillas, or bread.

  • While the onion cooks, cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. When the onion has browned, add the chicken pieces, red chili sauce, oregano, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in center of thickest part (cut to test), 7 to 8 minutes.

  • Add hominy, reheat to simmering, and serve. Offer lettuce and lime wedges to add to taste.
