    threeovens's Note:

    I have only recently discovered that I really love Cuban food. I went to school in Miami, but that was before the majority of the influx of Cuban immigrants (and besides, what do teenagers eat?). Anyway, while there are many similarities between different foods from the Caribbean, Cuban food is subtly different, but oh so delicious.

      I thought this tasted great! However, my son is allergic to paprika so I used a salt-free Cajun seasoning in place of the paprika. My only qualm is with the rice, mine turned out too soggy. I used basmati rice and placed it into boiling hot water for only 15 minutes (just until tender) prior to adding it to the chicken and roasting pan. Otherwise everything turned out fabulous!
