What’s For Dinner Tonight?

2 May

I have been getting bored with dinner so last night I dove into my cookbooks and tried to find a new recipe for the same old boring chicken! I found a winner in The Bon Appetit Fresh Easy Fast Cookbook. Mojito Chicken! Here is the fabulous recipe and a few pictures of the process of making dinner for M and I:)

Ingredients:

-3/4 cup fresh lime juice

-1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped finely

-1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp light rum

-6 tablespoons mint syrup

-4 chicken breasts

-2 limes, cut into slices

Take the lime juice, mint, 1/2 cup rum, and mint syrup and combine with a whisk. If you don’t have mint syrup you can make it with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water, heated until the sugar dissolves, then add chopped mint and allow to cool. Tenderize the chicken breasts and soak them in the marinade for 1-4 hours.

Take the additional 2 tbsp on rum and soak the sliced limes at room temperature.

Rum Soaked Limes

Once the chicken and limes have marinated place them onto your pre-heated grill. Cook the chicken until thoroughly cooked, and sear the limes until tender!

On the Grill!

 Once cooked take the chicken and top with the rum soaked lime garnish and serve! 

Mojito Chicken!

I served this with coconut rice and grilled zucchini, this will be added to our regular rotation of dinners. Off to search for tomorrow’s dinner because now I want to try some more new dishes for summer!
