Fried Chicken Chunks (Chicharrones De Pollo) Dominican
My family gobbled this up - including my boyfriend who is Dominican and normally hates fried chicken. I followed the recipe exactly (except I was out of adobo so used garlic salt instead). Next time I'll probably add some seasoning to the breading and marinate the chicken for longer.

Thank you! Thank you! This is awesome! I can't wait to make this recipe for my Dominican mother-in-law who pities her son for living with someone who can't cook anything like what he grew up with. He loved the dish and I know she will too. I just changed a couple things. I rubbed the flank steak with garlic salt before browning, added extra chopped garlic, substituted a beef bouillon cube with vegetable broth instead of the beef broth, and added green olives. I served it with rice, beans, and roasted sweet potatoes. It was absolutely fantastic!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I
I'm sure these changes would be good, but I (and my family) loved it as is.
