 Cuban fricase de pollo slow cooker edition


This is *my* version of Cuban Fricase that I altered for the Crockpot, that I think even my Aba (grandmother) would have liked.

Something interesting to point out with Cuban cooking and even Cuban culture in general is that it’s not your typical Caribbean fare you would find say in Jamaica or Bahamas because a lot of Cuban cooking is influenced by both Spanish and French cultures.

My Great Grandmother was actually born in France and came to Cuba at an Early age where her family owned much of the land around the Guantanamo Bay area(which was sold off at the beginning of the Depression). My dad always comments on how my Great Grandmother use to speak Spanish with a French Accent. This comes to show you the various cultures that are part of the small little Island of Cuba.

Because my life is so hectic sometimes I want a meal I can throw in the Crock pot with the added taste and culture of my Cuban heritage without the time spent slaving over the oven. So I came up with this Crockpot Fricase de Pollo (Cuban Style). I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

What you need to make Crockpot Fricase De Pollo

2-3 lbs chicken (legs,quarters,etc..)
1 lg onion sliced

6 garlic cloves, cut up
1 lg bell pepper sliced
One Cup of Chicken Broth (original recipe doesn’t call for this but It helps keep things moist in the Crock pot
1 Cup of tomato sauce
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup Olive oil(usually calls for Vegetable but I love using EVOO0
1 tsp capers
1/4 cup sliced pimiento filled olives
1 cup dry Cooking wine
1 lb potatoes, peeled and quartered

Add 2 packets of my secret ingredient Sazon Goya

You can find this in any international foods section( we found it in KS so I’m sure you can find it anywhere) If you can’t find it it’s fine just gives it a more authentic and flavorful taste 🙂 also you can add (half a cup of lime juice and half a cup of orange juice,a teaspoon of Cumin,oregano and garlic salt)

This is the simple part chop everything up throw in the crockpot.

Give it a good mix.

crockpot Cuban Chicken Fricassee (Fricase de Pollo)

Cook for 5-8 hours on low and serve over a bed of rice.

This recipe is so simple and you can leave it cooking in the morning or do like I do cook on high for 3-4 hours(until chicken is cooked).


Serve over a white rice (That is cooked with a few bay leaves that are removed before serving, veg.oil, salt and pepper)

This will definitely be a family favorite!

Yield: depends on serving

Crockpot Cuban Fricase de Pollo (Cuban Chicken Fricassée)

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes

This delicious and easy Crockpot Cuban fricase de pollo is the perfect and easy dinner dish. You don't have to speak Spanish to appreciate all the flavors in this dish that you can set and forget until dinner.


  • 2-3 lbs chicken (legs,quarters,etc..)
  • 1 lg onion sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves, cut up
  • One lg bell pepper sliced
  • 1 Cup of Chicken Broth (original recipe doesn't call for this but It helps keep things moist in the Crock pot
  • 1 Cup of tomato sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil(usually calls for Vegetable but I love using EVOO0
  • 1/4 cup sliced pimiento filled olives
  • 1 tsp capers
  • 1 cup dry Cooking wine
  • 1lb potatoes, peeled and quartered


  1. Mix all the ingredients into the crock pot or slow cooker
  2. Give it a good stir
  3. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8.
  4. The big thing is to make sure the chicken is cooked because if that's ready the whole dish will be at the right sazon (or seasoning)
  5. Serve and enjoy.


I serve this over a bed of rice that is cooked with a couple of bay leaves, salt, pepper and EVO. However, what you serve it over is your personal preference. I know some people say that potatoes are a starch already but, honestly we're Cuban and love our carbs.

I estimated the serving sizes below for the purpose of this program but honestly it always depends on the evaporation of the water and size of chicken used. For little kids I also take the chicken off the bone.

        To your taste. But I generally use 3 packets, but at least 2. I am from Key West, with a large Cuban Community, so I learned from the best! Enjoy! Also, if you can find Plantains (in the frozen International Dept. Publix always has them, some Krogers do, and all Latin Super Mercados do) They are the perfect side addition to the rice and black beans! It is the perfect balance of the amazing dish! Also, always add one Sazon packet to your Black Bleans with a Bay leaf.

    I’ve never tried chicken fricase. The basic recipe sounds pretty good. A bit heavy on the garlic for my taste. If my husband eats anything with garlic in it he’s on the sofa. I can’t stand the smell.

    I tried this and it was so good, please if you have a chance post more recipes, I always wanted to learn how to cook Cuban and Spanish dishes. I knew someone from an old boyfriend and the only thing I ever saw her make was chicken cutlets with lime. Im not sure if she was a real good cook. we lost touch because it was my old bf 25 years ago and it was his friends wife that was Cuban

    In Venezuela we have a similar dish. I remember going to my grandma’s on School vacations and eating this several times week! It was the only way to eat veggies. However She always add the green peas, corn and carrots…! No raisins because those were part of the rice!!!
    I really enjoy reading this recipe…!

    However the recipe I am SO eager to try (this weekend!) is your PICCADILLO. I have long loved this classic Cuban dish and while I often serve it over rice – but (like you) honestly, it’s my favorite spaghetti sauce – and my Honey/Hubby really loves it as either a taco filling or in a burrito.

    This chicken recipe sounds really good! Especially since I like to cook in my crockpot. I would leave out the raisins though.

    This recipe sounds incredibly delicious. I am always looking for new things to try because my family gets tired of the same old things. It also sounds super easy and I like doing easy. Thanks again for the recipe and your info.

    This looks easy and yummy! I get tired of the regular roast beef and potatoes in the crock pot. Thanks for the recipe.
