Ingredients List
  1. 1 3/4 lbs. bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
  2. 3 Tbsp. oil, divided
  3. 1 lb. yuca, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks, (about 3 cups)
  4. 1 large sweet potato, (about 1 lb.), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  5. 3 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  6. 6 cups water
  7. 1 cube Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon Cube(s)
  8. 2 corn-on-the-cob, cut into 4 pieces
  9. 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro



1. Season chicken, if desired, with salt and pepper. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in 5-quart pot over medium-high heat and cook chicken, turning once, until browned, about 5 minutes.

2. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in pot. Stir in yuca and sweet potato and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until lightly golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

3. Add water and Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon Cube and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and cook covered 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Stir in corn; cover and cook until vegetables are tender and chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken; cut meat from bones and return to pot. Stir in cilantro. Serve, if desired with lime wedges.
