I went to and typed in Cuban Chicken, pulled up several results! Just curious, though, where did you get the original? My husband is Cuban, and I have developed a love for Cuban Food! Have you ever tried a Cuban sandwich? OMG I love them!!

Was it for Cuban Chicken Skewers?

WW Cuban Chicken Skewers

1/2 cup orange juice
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp olive oil
2 large garlic clove(s), minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast(s), cut into 32 chunks
12 medium jalapeno pepper(s), halved lengthwise, seeded (do not touch seeds with bare hands)
2 serving olive oil cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving)


Combine orange and lemon juices, oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, salt and oregano in a resealable plastic food storage bag. Add chicken and peppers. Seal bag and turn to coat. Place bag on a plate on bottom shelf in refrigerator and marinate for 2 to 8 hours.

Preheat grill or grill pan. Thread chicken and pepper halves onto 8 metal or wooden skewers, using 4 pieces of chicken and 3 pieces of pepper per skewer. Coat with cooking spray. (Note: If you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water 30 minutes before use to prevent charring.)

Grill skewers, turning often, until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 6 to 8 minutes. Serve immediately. Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Yields 1 skewer per serving.
