Cuban Chicken Recipe Needed

I recently went to Margon, a Cuban restaurant, in Midtown Manhattan and had their chicken with yellow rice, black beans and plantains. It was basically a cut up chicken that had been simmered until falling apart in spices. They just call it a roast chicken, but I don't think it's like how we would cook a roast chicken because it's sitting in a sauce before served. I am looking to make something similar at home. Anyone have ideas?

Looks like Grilling Fool has the answer. Here's a pollo asado recipe to check out from "Three Guys from Miami Cook Cuban:"

You can also check out Fricasé de Pollo (Cuban Chicken Fricassee). Here are a few recipes:

You could always do what I do, for an easy alternative to authentic Cuban taste. You can find Goya marinade in most stores for under $3.00, so don't pay the outrageous price at Amazon. It really has the most amazing flavor for Cuban chicken. Check it out....

Thank you both.
Merstar, I had actually found a recipe for Chicken Fricassee right before you post. It wasn't exactly the recipe I was looking for, but really good and it got a big thumbs up. It's a keeper. I served with fried plantains, yellow rice and black beans.
