Recipe by Manami
Was looking for something to cook with chicken or some way new to prepare it and voila - I found this in Midwest Living ( a newsletter that I got as an introductory offer) We marinated it with fresh lime juice for a few minutes, didn't call for roasted garlic but I had some so I used it, & the rest is just scrumptious! Enjoyed it with haricots verts - mixed with onions - delicious. However, the sauce was so great that I paired it with rice. The Cubans love having a sauce to put on their white rice, served at almost every meal!!!!
