Mojito Chicken Breasts


Since I'm already a big Mojito fan (coconut or otherwise), why not make Mojito chicken? This recipe has been sitting around since 2004 - 10 years! It was definitely worth the wait.

Mojito Chicken Breasts (Adapted from BonAppetit)

3/4 c fresh lime juice and zest from limes
1/2 c light rum
1/2 c mint
1/4 c parsley
4 T sugar
1 T olive oil
1.5 lb boneless chicken breast (pounded thin)
salt/pepper

Whisk fist 6 ingredients together in a shallow bowl.  Place thinned chicken breasts in bowl. Cover and marinate for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator.  Turning once or twice.


Remove chicken from marinade.  Discard Marinade.  Oil grill and grill chicken about 10 minutes around 350 or until done.

These really came out beautiful. The Sous Chef is quite good with the grill (better than me but don't tell him I told you that). They don't taste too minty or too rumy - just right.
