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)
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.
