   Ingredients :
2 whole chicken breasts with bone
1 carrot, peeled and cut in large pieces
2 celery stalks
2 parsley sprigs
˝ leek
˝ cup oil, approximately
1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
˝ teaspoon garlic, finely minced
6 fresh yellow/ají amarillo, seeded, deveined and blended

Soak bread slices in 1 cup chicken stock and strain. If necessary, add more stock. Mixture must be creamy.
