This is a typical Cuban dish. It's easy to make and quite tasty. This goes best over white rice and some fried plantains.

Fabulous... but I'm only giving 4 stars because I made it with the changes others have suggested. I used 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs. I also added 3 heaping TBSP sofrito 2 env. Goya sazon and a can of diced tomatoes as others did. My modification was to also add 1/2 of a 8oz jar of alcaparrado (a mix of green olives pimento & capers)which is common to cuban cooking. Left is going in the slow cooker all day... served it with "moros & christianos" aka Moors & Christians(black beans and white rice). Shop your local mexican grocery if available. The added ingredients are worth the trip! Read More

This was easy and pretty good for a quick throw together crock pot dish. My husband even liked it and he likes "plain" food. Next time will leave out potatoes b/c even though I cubed them and put them in the bottom of the pot they did'nt cook thoroughly. Will serve with rice and black beans in future. Read More

What I like about Jenny's Cuban-Style Slow-Cooker Chicken Fricassee? It was nice and easy to put together. It was a pretty decent take on regular chicken fricasse. Things I would do differently: Remove the skin prior to cooking and add some chicken breasts also. Things I added to the recipe: I added a can of chopped Italian tomatoes with garlic and oregano and two packets of Sazon' (a Caribbean spice or seasoning packet-great flavor). I also added 5 large stuffed green olives. I served my dish over white rice and still used the potatoes too. My kids ate the chicken easily as it was soft and fell right off the bone. I will use this recipe again for its ease in preparation and because my family enjoyed it. Read More

Ok I prepared this using 4 drumsticks and 4 thighs. Went to work THEN I read the reviews. I stopped at the store and picked up SazonGoya and Goya Sofrito as recommended. I got home later so it had already been cooking an hour or so longer. I added some more white wine some chicken broth and the extra seasoning. My beau doesn't like dark meat so fearful I might have ruined the whole meal I baked 4 chicken breasts and threw that in too what the heck. I served over white rice. The meat feel right off the bones it was so tender! Sooo tasty! You just have to add the extra seasoning. I think the extra cooking time helped too it "thickened" everything up and the potatoes were tender. My boyfriend loved this dish adn we ate the leftovers for days. I would make this again! Read More

I also made some changes to this dish- I used 4 chicken breasts (chopped up) added 2 packets of GOYA Sazon (as mentioned previously) 3 TBSP of GOYA Sofrito (found in latin american food stores) and a can of diced tomatoes mentioned previously as well. The canned potatoes were a million times easier (and just as tasty) and I also served this over white rice w/ black beans. Fiance loved it and had the left overs for the next 2 days! Read More

I added this recipe a long time ago and did it right off the top of my head. I love the changes that everyone has made. Looking back of course it's best to remove the skin and adding olives makes it wonderful. I don't know why "Allrecipes" added the sage as I only use 1-2 bay leaves in it. You can make this quickly in a dutch oven on the stove too. The Goya seasoning or something like it should also have been included in the ingredients. Hope you continue to love it! Jenny!!! Read More

Delicious! Per other's comments I added Sazon and homemade sofrito. It was fabulous. For those who said it was bland be sure to taste the sauce before pouring it over the chicken. It might need more salt/pepper etc. Serve with white rice... perfect! Read More

I should have listened more to the bad reviews then the good ones. This was pretty much tasteless. I followed the recipe exact...I will never make again...the one good thing about it was that it was VERY easy to put together. Sorry Jenny Read More
