Cuban Chicken in Black Bean Sauce - Pollo en Salsa Frijol Negro


Cuban chicken in black bean sauce

This recipe was given to me by Andy Natal of Torrance, California. When he lived in Miami, Andy enjoyed this dish made by his friend's mother every Saturday. You can garnish it with tomatoes, or serve it plain over rice.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes

  • Cook Time: 1 hour

  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes



4 chicken thighs and 4 legs
1 large can of black beans
1/2 cup of sofrito
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
1 tablespoon of oregano
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
1/2 can of tomato sauce



Wash and season chicken with salt and pepper and set aside. In a deep iron cast skillet, add olive oil and sautee the sofrito for a minute. Add cumin, oregano and tomato sauce and mix around. Add beans and mix well. Add 1 cup of broth and mix. Let cook for 10 minutes.

Finally add apple cider vinegar and mix and cook another 3 minutes. Add chicken one at a time and submerge completely in sauce and cook for another 35-40 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes before serving over white rice. Yum, Yum!

The chicken will taste better if marinated overnight. This recipe serves 4.
