Spicy Cuban Chicken

Spicy Cuban Chicken created by DeniseBC

I got this from a friend at church; I haven't made it yet, but she brought it to a potluck and it was so yummy I had to ask for the recipe. It is credited to The Bean Education & Awareness Network. Prep time includes marinating time. ****update**** I messed up the marinating once I finally made this and left out the garlic and red pepper in the marinade. Instead I put the garlic in while sauteing the chicken and put in the red pepper with all the other spices. This made it pretty spicy, but good!

  • Combine dressing, garlic and red pepper in a 2 cup glass measure or medium glass bowl. Place chicken in large glass bowl, pour dressing over chicken, cover and marinate at least 30 minutes, but overnight is fine.
  • Remove chicken from marinade, drain well, discard marinade. Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add chicken, cook 5-7 minutes, stirring until chicken is slightly brown, spooning off any excess liquid.

    We are trying to incorporate more legumes and whole grains into our diet. My husband loves spicy foods but I'm not as much of a fan as he. I used a regular Italian dressing instead of low fat and used brown rice. Other than that I followed the recipe. I wouldn't call this particularly spicy although enough for me that I topped mine with a small amount of shredded cheddar cheese. I will make this again because it seems like it can be more flavorful without being much more spicy. Just needs some tweaking. It says it makes 6 servings but I would say more like 10 since just between the rice, beans and tomatoes there is almost 14 cups of food without the pound of chicken and the vegetables. We have leftovers!

    This was really good and easy to prepare. I used a red and a green pepper for color. It didn't have anywhere near enough spice though, so I had to add some more red pepper flakes. I will add more spices next time. I live in Iowa, and we don't have anything Cuban around here, so this was fun to try. Thanks for posting.
