Each week, a group of friends and I get together to watch Top Chef and we select a theme for the evening. Last night was "Cuban", so I used this recipe since it got great reviews. I don't know anything about Cuban food, but I personally didn't care for this recipe at all. You absolutely MUST take off the skin before cooking or you going to gag on the amount of grease in the sauce. I added diced tomatoes and the goya seasoning as other reviewers had suggested, but I still found the dish unappealing and hardly inspired. It was basically chicken sitting on a plate with tomato juice. Others said it was tasty, but I assume they were being kind. Don't think I would make it past an elimination challenge with this dish were I actually on the show! ;-)
