Picadillo is a typical Cuban dish prepared with ground beef, onion, garlic, cumin, wine, tomato sauce, raisins, olives and served with white rice. Today I want to share a delicious variation of this traditional recipe made with chicken. This recipe is really easy to prepare and you can leave it ready the day before so that when you get home the next day all you have to do is heat it up. Everyone in my house loves this dish; even my husband who isn’t a fan of raisins likes it! This recipe is filled with sazón and color. It goes very well with a glass of wine. MORE + LESS -
