Added some extra spices such as chacheres and a little extra garlic. This is a really goos and is very easy to make. Really cant mess it up as long as you be sure to get the chicken done all the way through but not dried out.

No problems with this recipe at all! We used yellow carrots and celery. Delicious! I just threw some foil on top and the chicken came out amazing! Will definitely make this one again!
