There is an outdoor country-style restaurant in Havana, Cuba that serves only white rice, French fries and a delightful chicken with all the sauce you want. Someone gave me this recipe, and it's similar to the one served at that restaurant. The orange juice and lemon juice give it a sweet, pungent flavor.

Somewhat bland. May help to marinate the chicken in the juices overnight. Was good served with black beans and rice. Read More

I made this with chicken breasts and found it did not have much depth of flavour but it is unusual enough that I will make it again adding some stock powder. Served with oven rice black beans and a spinach cranberry salad it made a good menu. Read More

I found this dish to have plenty of flavor. Used boneless/skinless thighs instead of whole chicken came out great! Read More

The chicken didn't really take on any of the flavors and was pretty boring but wow that sauce! I could eat that over rice any day of the week. Read More

Tried this--smelled great but was kind of bland and greasy. My always hungry teen-aged son passed on seconds. I won't make this one again. Read More

This chicken was pretty good. My husband really enjoyed it. We eat a lot of rice and therefore cook a lot of Asian food. It was nice to find something different to serve over rice. I did cook this in the slow cooker so the different flavors really incorporated into the chicken. Will make again. Read More
