I love rice and so does my husband. We try to find different ways to prepare and enjoy this wonderful food. Through time, we found hundreds of recipes, some simple and some exotic, and have enjoyed preparing them. We've found some real winners, which I have published on this blog and some that are not so great, which are in my personal "do not" repeat folder. I have created this site to share those memorable dishes - which are all about this wonderful food called "rice".

Mojito Chicken

2 tblsp olive oil
1 small onion (minced)
4 cloves garlic ( minced)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 lb skinless boneless chicken breasts (cut up into bite size pieces)
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup rum
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
Salt and pepper

In a glass bowl, toss chicken breast pieces with 1/4 cup of lime juice, salt and pepper.  Let marinade for 30 minutes. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and sugar and cook for approximately 3 minutes, until oniond are soft, stirring constantly. Add chicken and saute up to 5 minutes until golden brown on all sides.

Add the rest of the lime juice and carefully, off the heat, add the rum. Return to the heat and add lime zest and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3 minutes, until chicken is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.  Serve chicken, garnished with mint, over rice with roasted asparagus on the side.
