Cuban Style Chicken

Chicken Legs Simmering
Cuban Style Braised Chicken Legs

I love the bold flavors of Cuban food and I used them in these braised chicken legs served with rice. I started with chicken legs marinated in fresh lime juice, ground cumin, oregano and garlic. They were then browned and simmered till tender in a sauce of yellow onions, diced tomatoes, pinto beans, roasted peppers and green olives. Served with steamed rice and a squeeze of lime juice. Best when eaten on a tropical island beach.
