    I just made this for dinner tonight and it was excellent. I made it for my Puerto Rican husband and he loved it. I served it over some left over rice and beans we had. The only thing I changed was I shredded the chicken when I plated it. Thanks for the great and easy recipe, keep them coming. - 5/4/10

  • This recipe never fails! I'm Puerto Rican and have learned to cook this dish w/ this recipe :-) The only thing i do differently is add a dash of salt, some minced garlic and a bit of Spanish Olives to enhance the flavor.
