Brazilian Frango Caipira
 
this one is definitely authentic. a brazilian co-worker, from 
pernambuco, just gave it to me - she is a great cook. another one to 
try tonight or this weekend... 
 
frango caipira (easy-to-make-and-bake country-style chicken) 
 
chicken pieces, as many as you need 
lemon juice 
oil 
salt, pepper 
chopped garlic 
optional: a pinch of cumin 
1 to 1-1/2 cups chunky, flavorful tomato sauce (such as marinara sauce) 
over chicken. 
1/2 cup of coconut milk 
parmesan cheese. 
 
wash chicken first in lemon juice and pat dry 
preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. oil a pyrex dish. place 
chicken pieces in pyrex. sprinkle with salt, pepper and chopped 
garlic to taste. (optional: a pinch of cumin) 
pour chunky, flavorful tomato sauce (such as marinara sauce) over 
chicken. 
pour, by tablespoonsful, no more than 1/2 cup of coconut milk over 
the chicken and tomato sauce. 
sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese. 
cover with foil. bake approximately 1 hour until chicken is just 
about done. remove foil -- the steam will have made a nice sauce. 
place the pyrex under the broiler a couple of minutes until chicken 
is browned and tops of chicken pieces are rather crispy. 
the ingredients can be put together the day before, then baked when 
you are ready. serve with rice.
