    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is a Cuban dish that goes really well with rice and beans and fried plantains. This smells wonderful while it's cooking. Don't be alarmed by the amount of garlic, it will be okay. Prep time includes marinating time.

      Garlice, lime juice, shallots, onion and wine! What's not to love.
      Instead of discarding the marinade, I poured it on top of the chicken and had a fair amount in the bottom of the pan. The last 15 minutes of cooking I added a teaspoon of chicken stock base, 3/4 cup of water and about 3/4 cup of rice. Use more water if less juice is left in the pan.
      YUM! Deliciously flavored rice cooked in the same pan and ready with the chicken.

      LOVED this chicken! The flavor is great, and it stays nice and moist cooking this way. I'm a doofus though, I added the garlic to the marinade without thinking. @@ (rolley eyes) lol. But it still turned out great! I never cut a whole chicken in half before, but you know what? I think I'll do it more often--great way to have roasted chicken in a shorter time. Very easy with kitchen shears. I marinated for one hour, but next time, I'll get started earlier for a bit more time in the marinade. Browned the halves for about 5 minutes on each side, then roasted for 35 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe!
