This was delicious, i made it for lunch and so easy. Loved the lime and heat. One change i made was subbing Dar Jeerah powder for the coriander and cumin seed which i did not have. Dar Jeerah is a fabulous indian spice 2 to 1 mix of ground cumin to coriander. Makes life easy when both are called for. Oh and bc its freezing here, i made this in the skillet then added a half tablespoon of butter and a couple of tablespoons of water to the left over pan and made a little sauce with the marinade.
We took another reviewers suggestion and pureed the mojo. The heat was perfect and the cumin (which we love), comes thru nicely. We baked it and served it with steamed rice for a wonderful and healthy Lite-Bleu meal. Thanks again Maito, for a really nice recipe.
Personally, I thought this had just the right amount of heat. And we love "HEAT" here in this house. I cooked it on the grill and let it marinate for 1 hour. You can really taste the cumin so if you are not a fan, cut the amount down or don't make this. :) Very juicy chicken. Thanks for posting.
Quite easy and tasty, but I think I would add some lime zest also, and puree the mojo ingredients in my mini-processor so that a little more of the jalapeno flavor would come through. I cooked the chicken on the Foreman, but I think the bbq would be better so you get some smoke. Will do that next time, and may try the mix on some salmon! Thanks for sharing.
