Chicken Calle Ocho

Chicken Calle Ocho created by KateL

My mom was cleaning out one of her closets and came across several folders full of recipes that she had clipped from magazines and newpapers over the years. This came from a March 1992 edition of the Houston Chronicle. This chicken is great served over steamed rice.

    This is the recipe I've been looking for. It originally came from a Cuban restaurant on Miami's famous 8th Street. There's something with the spice and herb measurements as given here. Also, I cooked it longer than ten minutes. The spices need to blend. Don't give up on it. Just play with it.

    This is so bland. Quick and not worth it.

    DH enjoyed this a lot, but this didn't wow me: it struck me as a "US Family Style" recipe that gave a nod to Mexican spices but was extremely mild. I had plenty of sauce, but perhaps that was due to the 28-oz can of Marzano plum tomatoes in tomato puree I used instead of tasteless hothouse tomatoes. I think this would be more appetizing with yellow rice. I liked how fast this came together. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

    I liked this, but no one else in my house did. I really do not know why. I doubled the recipe, so I cooked the chicken in 2 batches. I had plenty of liquid in mine (despite the review that Teresa S gave) but that might have been because my pan was more crowded. Because I expected less sauce, I made Recipe #129238 with this. It would have been better with plain rice, which I would serve next time (at least if I doubled the recipe again).
