    Krystal-Belle's Note:

    This chicken is oh, so good! I like to use dark meat (legs prefferably, or thighs), but I'm sure that it would be good with leaner cuts if chicken as well.

      I made this tonight for dinner with yellow rice and black beans. It was a hit! Easy and delicious! I used less salt because the olives are salty. Thanks for sharing.

      The flavor was good, but WAAAYY too salty. After seeing the 2 tablespoons of Kosher salt...I was like "huh?" So, I only added one and was nervous about that....oh my god...I drank 2 bottles of water with dinner just washing down the salt from the chicken. Next time, I will skip the salt altogether and maybe add some cumin.

      Who knew I could cook such a great Cuban dish! Everyone really enjoyed it. We used sliced salad olives, next time I will go for the manzanilla olives, and there will be a for-sure next time, yum!
