My father who has Alzheimer’s was born in Havana, Cuba and this recipe is something that he and I would make. I partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to tell my story about gathering around the table and sustaining family history through food. I firmly believe in getting people to cook, no matter what. When we cook and share food together, we build indelible memories of conversations and stories. Through some love and heart, this easy recipe blends the thriftiness of chicken thighs, simple vegetables, and rice into something nourishing… and really tasty.
