chicken and vegetable dish from El Alcapulco

chicken & vegetables

Usually Mexican restaurants don’t make me think of healthy food.  That’s why I was so surprised when I saw Pollo Sinaloense on the menu at El Alcapulco.  The platter came out with grilled chicken, red peppers, yellow peppers, asparagus, squash, zuccini, broccoli and onions. It was so delicious! Even before I put shredded cheese and queso on it.. I highly recommend this great dish!
