“This recipe is an all in one. This was a family favorite while I was growing up and I believe it still is one of my favorites. It's simply chicken and rice with fabulous Cuban flavours! This recipe is quick and easy and can be served with a salad, fried plantains or even a banana - a Cuban favorite with any meal!” - by Sussell
