This was very nice. I thoroughly enjoyed the chicken. I marinated it for about an hour and a half and grilled it on the barbecue. I would recommend oiling the grill first, as the chicken stuck quite a bit. Nothing a lifter couldn't fix. The rice salad was excellent! I followed the directions exactly, making sure I cooled the rice immediately after it was cooked. I ended up adding a bit of salt to brighten up the flavours. Next time, I think I might also add a splash of lime juice. It was an excellent accompaniment to the chicken. All in all, a delicious, healthy meal. Follow the directions, and you can't go wrong. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2012.
Hmm, this wasn't at all what I expected, so I'm not giving it any stars because I had to change so much. Part was my fault - I assumed the rice/veggie mix would be hot and not be a cold salad. I heated it up anyway. Also, the marinade was so thick, I couldn't imagine putting it on the grill, so I cooked the chicken in a cast iron skillet and used the rest of the "marinade" as a sauce. It curdled a bit so it doesn't look too appetizing. I must have done something wrong. The flavor is ok, but I probably will not be making again. Sorry! (One of the photos is how it looks in the marinating stage.)
