Delsuita was the name of my maid growing up abroad, and she always used to make this dish. Suffering from a pang of nostalgia, I asked my mom for the recipe, and couldn't have been more pleased at how easy it is!

This was good and possibly make it again one day. I liked the tangy flavor but not out of this world. Read More

I didn't have fresh tomatoes so used a can of diced tomatoes drained. The flavor was good but didn't notice a huge change from the average "chicken" flavor from the marinade. Sure smelled good while it was marinating though. Read More

This is very good! It ends up being more of a soup so you may want to keep the pieces of chicken smaller so you don't have to cut them up while you eat. Read More

The chicken turned out well but I think I used too much tomato (out of a can). I mixed it with rice though which was a good idea to cut down on the soupyness. Read More

I thought this was quite tasty. I made this recipe exactly as written only substituting red and orange peppers for the green one. Next time I would marinate the chicken a bit longer and add a little more lime juice. EDIT: I have made this many times now and we love it. If you marinate the chicken all day in the fridge it really boosts the flavour. I use skinless boneless thighs. I have found it is better with fresh tomatoes and adding the ketchup is a must.

It was very good. I would marinate it longer next time. I also added 2 tbsp of cayenne pepper and a 1 tbsp of brown sugar. Our family loves spicy foods. Overall it was good. Read More
