Thank you for this recipe! I have wanted to create pollo a la crema at home for my Mexican husband for months. I did change the recipe a little. I used chicken tenders to reduce prep time and added sliced onions and mushrooms. I added cumin, El Tapatio hot sauce (to taste), shredded mozzarella and some parmesan cheese to the sauce. My husband said the recipe was better than several Mexican restaurant versions hands down. I plan on making this again in the near future to share with my in-laws.

I changed this recipe just a little.I used 3 chicken breast and used tomato paste instead of ketchup and I used Knorr brand granulated chicken broth(1 1/2 tsp).No flour.I added sauted fresh mushrooms.Really close to authentic.Will make this again. Thanks for the recipe.

Good, with a few changes. Altered it to add sliced mushrooms, onion, garlic and red pepper, like the mexican place does by my house. After tasting, I added a bit of cumin and a few shakes of hot sauce. I just had to make another half recipe of sauce. I used organic broth. Thanks for sharing.
