    My family loved this meal. It came out wonderful and they have already requested that I make it again soon. I didn't change anything about the recipe, but it was perfect just the way it is.

    Excellent, reminded us of our trip to cuba! Used thighs instead of breasts, and put in raw orange, and yellow peppers instead! Will be added to our favourites. Thanks!

    This came together really well. I used bone in breasts, so it took a while longer to cook, but the flavor was really good! Served with some good hot sauce!

    We loved this. We kept some without the red peppers for the 10 year old, who then gave it two thumbs up. I added sliced green olives because I love them. Because of that, I skipped the salt. This was very easy and a great meal. I cannot wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow at lunch. My co-workers will be so jealous!

    Looked tasty, but very bland. Neither of us ate all of what I put on our plates. Sure didn't taste like Moms. Is possible I did something wrong, but I used all he ingredients listed and followed the steps carefully, as I've never made this before. Have eaten it, so I know what it should taste like. Will have to doctor the leftovers.


I love food and I love to cook. I enjoy trying new and different foods and ingredients, enjoy traveling, festivals that gear toward food or drink, camping and being with family & friends. I am a serious cookbook and recipe collector, love my felines and try to balance my life to live to it's fullest.
