Cuban Chicken

This chicken is oh, so good! I like to use dark meat (legs prefferably, or thighs), but I'm sure that it would be good with leaner cuts if chicken as well.

ingredients

directions

  • Season chicken with salt, black pepper, and garlic powder (to taste).
  • Meanwhile, heat a shallow pan over medium heat and add oil.
  • Brown chicken in pan on both sides.
  • Once chicken is browned, add in sofrito and turn chicken to coat all sides in the sauce. Reduce heat to a medium-low setting.
  • With the side of a knife, crush olives and put into pan with chicken. Cook for about 15 minutes, turning chicken every few minutes until it is done.
  • This is best served with white rice as you will have some of the sofrito mixture left over to put over your rice. YUM-O!

    I made this tonight for dinner with yellow rice and black beans. It was a hit! Easy and delicious! I used less salt because the olives are salty. Thanks for sharing.

    The flavor was good, but WAAAYY too salty. After seeing the 2 tablespoons of Kosher salt...I was like "huh?" So, I only added one and was nervous about that....oh my god...I drank 2 bottles of water with dinner just washing down the salt from the chicken. Next time, I will skip the salt altogether and maybe add some cumin.

    Who knew I could cook such a great Cuban dish! Everyone really enjoyed it. We used sliced salad olives, next time I will go for the manzanilla olives, and there will be a for-sure next time, yum!

    Nice Recipe. It required minimal ingredients and was easy to follow. DH and the kids enjoyed it. The sauce might help make a good swiss steak too. Plan to try it next. Thanks!

    I made this last night and they turned out very yummy! My friend had a piece and he liked it alot. I definitely had to increase the cook time though. The olives and sofrito worked great together. Gracias :)
