      Such a great, satisfying dish. Wonderful smells while it's cooking, great flavors. I used prosciutto and pimento stuffed olives (what I had on hand) and made Rita's Sofrito (which I highly recommend). I did use chicken breasts instead of thighs--the meat was very juicy. So good! Thanks, Rita.
