My family loved this meal. It came out wonderful and they have already requested that I make it again soon. I didn't change anything about the recipe, but it was perfect just the way it is.

Excellent, reminded us of our trip to cuba! Used thighs instead of breasts, and put in raw orange, and yellow peppers instead! Will be added to our favourites. Thanks!

This came together really well. I used bone in breasts, so it took a while longer to cook, but the flavor was really good! Served with some good hot sauce!
