Chicharrones de pollo was a simple looking yet interesting meal served at Monty’s. Chicharron means ‘pork rind’ and in this sense the de Polo part means they are bite-size pieces of crispy fried chicken. This preparation originated in Spain, and the dish has found its way into the hearts and stomachs of many people in Latin America, the southern United States, and of course, Mexico. The taste is much like fried chicken, and can be served with rice or just by itself. The chicken is savory and the texture was more soft than crispy, but it depends on how you cook it.
While it may just look like some fast food fried chicken, once you take that first bite, you will realize that it is anything but! A world of fresh crispy-ness awaits you with Chicharrones de pollo. So next time you see that on a sign at a food place, go for it!
