Locrio is one of the most traditional Dominican dishes and I have already shared some of its variations. For some reason that I can't explain, I had not shared the most traditional of the locrios: the chicken locrio.

The chicken is the most consumed meat in the Dominican Republic and along with pork the preferred one for the locrios.
