 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Butter
  • 1 ts Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 c Unsalted Chicken Stock
  • 4 Ears Yellow Corn, shucked,
  • Sliced into 1" wheels
  • 3 lb Chicken Breasts, cut up
  • 2 ts Sweet Paprika
  • 1 c Onions, finely diced
  • 3 c Milk
  • 2 lg Yucca, peeled and diced
  • 1 Lime, juiced


Melt the butter in a 6 qt. pot over medium heat. Cook chicken pieces in the
butter until no longer pink. Remove chicken with slotted spoon and place in
in a bowl. Put onion, garlic, cayenne, and paprika in pot and cook while
stirring, until onion is translucent and colored with the paprika. Add
stock, milk, yucca, corn, and chicken to the pot. Bring almost to a boil
then reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring every now and then, for about
1 hour, or until yucca is tender. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice.
Serve with Cuban or French bread that has been sliced and broiled until

As an alternative frozen corn on the cob will work, as well as fresh frozen
kernels. The fresh corn cob seems to impart a nice flavor to this dish.

If you're wondering what to do with the wheels of corn, just pick 'em up
with your fingers and nibble 'round the rims.
