I have brought this recipe with me, from the time we left Cuba in 1959 - the year that dreaded man took over - and ruined the country, as we can see now - some 40 odd years later. It is typical of the chicken dishes served all over Miami now.

  2. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add one chopped onion and saute, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute longer.

  6. In a separate medium bowl, combine the remaining onion, orange juice, lemon juice and wine.
  7. Season with salt, pepper and bay leaf.
  8. Add the heated onion & garlic oil and mix well.
  9. Place chicken pieces in a 9x13 inch baking dish and pour the juice mixture over the chicken, coating well.
