Pollo Chuco

pollo chuco

“Uno de los platos favoritos desde mi niñez es el pollo con tajadas, más conocido popularmente como el ‘pollo chuco’. Este es uno de los platos mas deliciosos y el segundo mas popular después de las baleadas; y esto se debe a la perfecta combinación de las tajadas de plátano y las salsas con el pollo frito.  Y no puede faltar la ensalada de repollo para volver a esta comida uno de los platillos hondureños mas deseados para las personas que como yo decidimos salir de nuestro país por diferentes razones!  Y es en lo personal una de las mejores comidas de Honduras.”

fullsizeoutput_3 Fried chicken is a classic found in every single cuisine around the world – and truth be told, the recipe doesn’t change much. What does change, though, are the sides & sauces that dress it up, and as you can see, ours isn’t the bashful kind of chicken. Found primarily on the north coast, this famous dish is big in our industrial capital of San Pedro Sula; so much that there’s actually a National Pollo Chuco Day mid-January to celebrate the beloved dish with family & friends, with activities such as the ‘pollo chuco challenge’, where participants can compete to become the ‘comelón de pollo‘, or the ‘big chicken eater’. The delicious sides include plantain chips, our uniquely prepared cabbage salad, and topped with the messy sauce, which gives the dish its signature name: dirty chicken!
