I was given this recipe by a woman from deep in the heart of Mexico. The trick is to cook it slow, so be sure to give yourself enough time to allow the flavor to develop. You will be glad you did!

This chicken is very flavor intensive, so I serve these tostados with fresh fruit or pineapple and cottage cheese.
