  • In large sealable plastic bag, place olive oil, 3 tablespoons lime juice, lime zest, garlic, jalapeno and ginger. Add chicken and marinate in refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in medium saucepan over medium high heat, place coconut milk and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and add remaining 1/4 cup lime juice and salt. Stir in rice, cover, reduce heat and cook 30-50 minutes, until done.(You might start with the lowest amount of liquids, cooking time varies).

Fry in hot oil about 1-1/2 minutes per side, pushing down with back of spatula to flatten. When browned, remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Cut each slice into quarters, leaving a few whole for garnish.
