Pollo Pipian is a traditional hispanic dish typically made with chicken in a creamy pumpkin seed and chili sauce. This recipe for Grandma's Pipian Sauce Chicken varies slightly from the original, using almonds in the sauce instead of pumpkin seeds. Seared chicken is topped with the creamy ancho chile and almond sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds for an extra crunch. This recipe also adds fried ancho chili rings for additional crunch and savory flavor.

  • chicken-flavored soup powder
