These chicken breasts in escabeche they are which are made in my house forever, but in particular this recipe has adopted it my Aunt nena each summer prepares it for us.

My Paloma cousin many years ago that he went to live to New York, and when it comes in summer is the perfect excuse to meet all premiums with mini cousins (children of each one of us). Each carries a plate because in the end we are a pandilon (between 20 and 30), but what is never missing are these chicken breasts marinated my Aunt baby prepares us in the chalet where summer and is the meeting point always of all the cousins.

There are a few chicken breasts in marinade that make magic with the chicken and that transform into a delicacy meat that is most tasteless chicken, the breast, which is my favorite. You can chop them but my love to leave them whole. When I prepare them, take the opportunity to prepare too much, normally two kilos, and keep them in glass jars that are perfectly preserved in the refrigerator. The only thing that must be taken into account is that you have to sterilize the jars.

So I wash well the jars, and filled them with middle finger of water. I put them in the microwave for two minutes. While I boil the lids in a saucepan with water. When they are ready, I fill the jars with the still hot marinated chicken breasts and I close them well. We have chicken breasts marinated preserved for several months. Although they do not usually last beyond a few weeks.

So thanks to my Aunt baby by the receton and those wonderful afternoons at the chalet and we come to these chicken breasts recipe pickled that they will love you because you will see!
