Recipe by Maria
"There is an outdoor country-style restaurant in Havana, Cuba that serves only white rice, French fries and a delightful chicken with all the sauce you want. Someone gave me this recipe, and it's similar to the one served at that restaurant. The orange juice and lemon juice give it a sweet, pungent flavor."

olive oil, divided
1 (4 pound)
whole chicken, cut into 4 pieces
salt and pepper to taste
This recipe is absolutely excellent! Very quick and easy. My hubby loved it (and he usually doesnt rave about food unless its puertorican). He said it was a keeper!
Somewhat bland. May help to marinate the chicken in the juices overnight. Was good served with black beans and rice.
Same ingredients, only double the liquid.. and put it in the crockpot for 5-6 hours, worked great.
This was a really quick recipe to throw together and it tastes wonderful!
I found this dish to have plenty of flavor. Used boneless/skinless thighs instead of whole chicken, came out great!
I made this with chicken breasts, and found it did not have much depth of flavour, but it is unusual enough that I will make it again, adding some stock powder. Served with oven rice, black beans and a spinach cranberry salad, it made a good menu.
Tried this--smelled great, but was kind of bland and greasy. My always hungry teen-aged son passed on seconds. I won't make this one again.
