 When I was in Arizona visiting my father a few years ago, I asked a hispanic believer if she could give me an authentic recipe.  This is the one she gave me.  It's incredibly delicious.  I used a bit more paprika then she called for 2-- T of paprika and it was so good.  I compared this recipe with another on a Dominican site, and they added vegetables to theirs so I thought I would add them.  Everyone liked how tender and flavorful the meat was.  

POLLO GUISAD0 (Mexican Braised Chicken)

1.  Prepare chicken: Rinse 2 lbs of chicken pieces (legs, thighs, wings) in warm water.  Squeeze the juice of a lemon and rub it all over the chicken.

2.  Prepare vegetables:(1)  Chop up 1 red onion (I used yellow)(2)  Chop up 1/2 cup of celery(3)  Chop up 2 green bell peppers(4)  Mince 2 t of garlic

3.  Cook chicken:(1)  Put 2-3 T of coconut oil into a large skillet and add 1 t of sugar and cook until it browns.  (2)  Add the chicken and brown both sides.(3)  Add the vegetables sauté while the chicken continues cooking.(4)  Put the chicken in a 9 x 13 casserole pan.

  4.  Prepare sauce: 
(1)   Put 1 cup of tomato sauce and 2 T of tomato paste into a medium size bowl.
   (2)  Add seasonings:  2 t salt, 2 t black pepper, 1 -2 T paprika, 1/8 t oregano, 2 t no salt seasoning, 2 t gluten free tamari, 2 t balsamic vinegar, 1 t chicken bouillon, and 1/2 of a bunch of chopped cilantro.  
   (3)  Pour the seasoned tomato sauce over the chicken. You can cook this in a large electric skillet, a dutch oven on the stove, or you can bake it in the oven at 350.   Cook until the chicken is tender about 30-45 minutes or until tender.  Taste the sauce and make any adjustments. 
  (4)  Serve with rice.
