1/7 Photos of Mama's Mojito Chicken
Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:
We have come to adore this chicken. Part of a meal I created for RSC 8 Island Mojito Chicken and Rice With Salsa Tropicale. Here is just the chicken for those who want a simpler recipe. We use boneless skinless chicken breasts but use whatever you like. This marinade is enough for one whole chicken cut up or 8 pieces. I have included the weight just to give you an idea. Of course, it will weigh more if the pieces have bones.
