- Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Fry chicken, turning once, for 5 to 7 minutes or until browned. Remove from saucepan; set aside.
- Roast whole chiles over gas stove burner or broil until skins blister. Remove immediately to avoid burning. Place chiles in cold water for 10 minutes. Peel and remove seeds, if desired.

Cook, stirring occasionally, for 40 minutes. Add potatoes; cover. Cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add media crema; cook for 1 minute or until heated through.
