Posted on: February 19, 2013


Margarita Chicken with Cilantro Lime Brown Rice:

2-4 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast (Washed and trimmed)
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 3 limes
Juice of 1 orange
4-5 Garlic Cloves (minced)
2 teaspoons of Ground Cumin
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
1/4 – 1/2 cup of extra virgin Olive Oil

Combine all ingredients (except chicken) in large bowl, adding salt and pepper to satisfy your tastes. Whisk together thoroughly. Add chicken to the bowl and toss chicken until covered with Marinade. Pour chicken and marinade into a Ziploc bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hrs. (NOTE: I marinated my chicken over night and the flavors were amazing. The longer you let it marinate, the more the flavors will have a chance to permeate the chicken.)

Preheat your skillet (adding a little bit of olive oil), sear Chicken breast on both sides until is has a nice caramel glaze. About 4-5 minutes each side. (Be sure to cook until chicken is done and juices run clear)

Cilantro Lime Brown Rice:1 Cup of Brown Rice
2 Cups of water
Kosher Salt (To Taste)1 Tablespoon of Lime Juice
2 Teaspoons of Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Fresh of Dry Cilantro
1 bay leave

Bring water to boil. Add rice and bay leave. Return to boiling. Once water and rice are boiling again, reduce to simmer and cook until done. Remove from heat, remove Bay leave. Add lemon and lime juice, cilantro and salt. Fluff and enjoy!
