    it was ok but it certainley was lacking in flavour until i added the tomato puree which made it slightley richer and could add some nice red and green fresh chilli just to give it a zing!!  -  23 Sep 2010

    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.  -  28 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
