What to have with Cuban bbq chicken?

White rice, chatinos (fried plantain), salads and baked potatoes are perfect to have with this typical Cuban dish.

It is important that the soy sauce you use doesn’t have too much salt because this can change the flavor of the recipe.

Likewise, if you use salted butter, check the flavor before adding salt.

We use a bit of salt to marinade the chicken because we use unsalted butter and the soy sauce has a very low salt content.
