Mexican acapulco chicken (en escabeche)

Enjoy this recipe from the south of the border and i will daily post more Mexican recipes on this thread so watch out.
2 cups Unsalted chicken broth -- defatted
1 tablespoon Olive oil
2 teaspoons Ground cumin
2 tablespoons Pickling spice
1/2 Red bell pepper -- sliced
1 pound Boneless chicken breast -- halves
1/2 Yellow bell pepper -- sliced
2 tablespoons Minced jalapeno chili with -- seeds
1 Onion, halved -- thinly sliced
1/3 cup Rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup Fresh cilantro leaves
3 large Garlic cloves -- minced
baked (no oil) tortilla chips

Boil broth and pickling spice in heavy large saucepan ten minutes. Strain and return liquid to saucepan. Add chicken, onion, vinegar, garlic, oil and cumin to pan. Simmer over very low heat until chicken is just cooked through, about ten minutes. Transfer chicken and onions to shallow dish. Top with bell peppers and minced chilli. Boil cooking liquid until reduced to 2/3 c, about ten minutes. Pour liquid over chicken and let cool 30 minutes. Add cilantro to chicken mixture. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, turning chicken occasionally, about 4 hours (can be prepared one day ahead). Slice chicken and transfer to plates. Top with marinated vegetables and some of the juices. Pass tortilla chips to use as "pushers." .

Sounds like this dish is sort of a "pickled chicken", and served cold? Actually it sounds different and refreshing for the hot summer months ahead. I can imagine it served with a cold Gazpacho for a hot summer dinner. Thanks for the recipe.....and it would all fit into my low carb diet!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
