A great and tasty summer recipe that combines the tastes of a Mojito and grilled chicken. This comes from the WeightWatchers "Sizzle It' book.

This was really delicious. I accidentally put the chicken in all of the marinade so I had to make a little extra to pour over the top. Served with oven fried plantains and a rice and black bean salad. Great summer dinner.
