    Manami's Note:

    Another Cuban favorite. Marinate chicken overnight. We serve this meal every once in awhile. I like okra and served this way it is delicious! Cook it until it is the consistency you like.

      Wow! Cuban food rocks. The flavours really came together well in this dish. The only thing I'd do differently is adjust the cooking time which was was too long. The vegetables were reduced to a mushy stew. Would have liked if they held their shape more for better visual appeal. Added this to our regular meal rotation.
