3 lbs. bone-in, skin-on chicken pieces (like breasts, thighs and/or legs)

GOYA® Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper, to taste

¼ medium onion, finely chopped (about ½ cup)

Juan José Arévalo

Mr. Arévalo was the first Guatemalan president to be elected by a democracy. He was elected in 1944, after serving in the Guatemalan ministry of education in 1936, and getting several academic positions in Argentina. While he was president, he established a social security system and made a law about the work system for Guatemalans. He also created public hospitals, freed people from former laws, strengthened the legislature, encouraged political parties, and worked to make indians equally with other citizens. Stephen C. Schlesinger said that," Arevalo was really the founding father of modern Guatemala.''
