Really good stuff. A different twist on fried chicken. I'm new to this type of cooking, but really liked this.

Great recipe! My Husband is Dominican and he said that it reminded him of DR.

This recipe was SO good, thanks so much for sharing! I only had time to marinate it for about 1.5 hours, it turned out delicious!

I loved this. This is really authentic. I am Dominican, so I know. I did this for my american in laws and they loved it. My husband likes it too and helps me cook it at home.

I did the recipe, step by step and did not come out as expected. The only way I was able to enhance the flavour was with Lime (lots of it).
