How to Make Cuban Chicken
- Put chicken pieces in the crockpot and set the temperature on low.
- Add all the ingredients except the rice and peas. Add the water from the peas and just put the peas in the refrigerator until you add them later.
- Cook on low for about 3 hours. Estimate how much longer your chicken has to cook you want it to be coming apart when it is done. So when there is an hour left to cook add the cup of long grain rice. Sprinkle all over the top of the cooking crock of chicken and vegetables and juice. Do not stir.
- Now sprinkle the canned peas all over the bed of rice and do not stir. Cover the crockpot with the lid and let the rice cook and soak up the broth for the next hour. Watch it and make sure it does not dry out.
This dish is excellent the next day.
