    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    Delicious mojito chicken surrounded by an ocean of tasty rice and topped with a fresh salsa. This is a long recipe with lots of ingredients but it makes an entire meal that will please both company and family. I hope you enjoy this creation I made for RSC8.

      Great meal to make earlier in the day and then just cook later. I tasted the salsa made as directed except the balsamic and it is VERY good but I had bits of mango and pineapple that needed used so added them. Very good addition and then I added a splash of ginger beer ( non alchoilic) WOW after this set for awhile the flavour was awesome. Made for Family picks ZWT 5 for team Zaar Chow Hounds

      Being the spice nuts that we are here at my house we just absolutely LOVED this chicken. Everyone was ummm'ing and licking their fingers. I had everyone chopping and helping get the work done so it was even more appreciated! I LOVED the marinade for the chicken but the salsa was to die for. Have you posted the salsa by itself? You should! I added some fresh mango and pineapple bits just because I had them in the refrigerator and needed to use them. But I didn't leave ANY of the ingredients out at all! Next time I will double the salsa because we dumped it all over the plate, even on the rice! Thank you for an absolutely delightful flavor bursting recipe!
