Articles can be tricky, so it's perfectly normal to have doubts.
Sometimes their use is the same as in English, like in the first case:
You use no article to refer to something in general: Entonces, vamos a pedir pollo con vegetales. (So, we're goins to order chicken with vegetables.)
But you'd add the article to refer to something specific: Entonces, vamos a pedir EL pollo con vegetales. (So, we're going to order THE chicken with vegetables.) as if you were pointing at it on a menu..
But sometimes, the use is different from English, like in the second sentence:
In this sentence in Spanish, the use of the article is compulsory because of the verb. So, something to keep in mind:
Whenever you use the verb "gustar", you need an article before the noun, so: Sorry, but they don't like black beans. will always be:
Disculpe, pero no les gustan LOS frijoles.
Hope this help, keep it up!
