Pollo A La Ana - Venezuelan Creamy Chicken

Pollo A La Ana - Venezuelan Creamy Chicken

Around the world for £4 or less took us to Venezuela this time!


1 Chicken Breast per person (We butchered a £2.35 Chicken and roasted the remainder yesterday)
1 Tbsp  Oil
1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
½ Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon Adobo Seasoning (See below Sue made her own)
¼ Onion (chopped in small pieces)
2 Cloves or Garlic grated
½ Cup Sliced Mushroom
A slug of White Wine
1 Cup of single Cream
3 Spring Onions
Chopped Coriander to dress

Adobo Seasoning:-

2 Tbsp Salt
1 Tbsp Paprika
2 Tsps Black Pepper
1 1/ Tsps Oregano
1 1/2 Tsps Onion Powder
1 1/2 Tsps Cumin
1 Tsps Garlic Salt
1 Tsp Chilli Powder


(1) Cut the Chicken breasts into halves.
(2) Season the chicken breasts with the Oil, Worcestershire, Soy sauce and Adobo seasoning in a bowl.
(3) Leave the chicken breasts to marinade. In the meantime cut the Spring Onions & Onions, and begin to sauté them along with the minced garlic in a large pan.
(4) Add the chicken to the pan and begin to sauté them.
(5) When the Chicken is partially cooked, add the Mushrooms and Coriander, and continue to cook for about 5 more minutes.
(6) Add the Wine to the pan and let it cook at medium heat.
7. When the Chicken breasts and the Mushrooms start to brown and there is little Wine left, you can add the Cream and let it cook for a while to allow the flavours to blend. Dress with a little Chopped Coriander and serve.

We served ours with Dauphinoise potatoes and sautéed Leeks and Broccoli. We made a mistake with the Mature Cheddar we had in the fridge and it split in the Dauphinoise Potatoes. But it still tasted good.

Really? This is a Government Employee?Dear Jody,
                 Firstly I thank you for your reply. Although I found is somewhat difficult to understand. I would expect a reasonably level of literacy from a Government Employee.
Please see below:-
Your message “ Hi Antony,
If they wasn't able to do that for you, you can download it off the website and if you put in the search bar uc50 and its the top one that you can download and complete. 
Kind Regards Jody “
I would prefer this to have been phrased:-
“ Hi Antony,
If our department or our sub-contractors were unable to assist you with this, you can download it from the website. By inserting “uc50” in the search bar you will find the 24 page full colour .pdf file. If you could possibly download and print this we will reimburse you for the cost involved, as this is clearly our mistake.
Kind Regards Jody “
I did not receive your form. Possibly because your system caused us to be homeless and living in a tent for 8 weeks? No postal service etc. I will however complete your form and walk a 3 mile round trip with a heart condition to drop it off at Job Centre Plus York. I'm sure it would be much more convenient for me to die on the way. 
However, with the assistance and in partnership with various charities we visited 10 Downing Street yesterday to deliver a petition against UC. We sincerely hope it forces change and makes your position as an employee more tenable and doesn't lead to the system you have to enforce killing too many more people.
As we only receive £430+ a month and the cartridges for the printer cost us £48 I think it only fair that you reimburse us. I can provide the WH Smiths receipt.
