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

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.

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!

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!
