Quite impulsively, I picked up a pack of lime that I saw when I did the grocery at Tropical Hut very recently. I thought it looked really pretty and would love to use it sometime. It hasn’t yet cooled down much in our ref when I decided to use it up in tandem with my chicken right away.
In the culinary world, lime holds a lot of value as it is appreciated for its acidity of its juice and the aromatic properties it posseses. Quite a popular ingredient in Mexican, Southwestern United States and Thai dishes, it’s become very popular in our household too:)
And yeah, finally, my fingers are back pounding away on these keys, blogging. I missed blogging. The last two weeks kept my hands tied having had to work on certain important “missions” (a.k.a rakets, lol).
Anyway, here goes the recipe:
2 whole chicken breasts, cubed
juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup soy sauce
4 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup oil (for marinating)
1/2 cup oil (for frying)
1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Meantime, combine all ingredients (except frying oil) to make the marinade.
2. Marinate chicken for an hour. Pour marinade and chicken in a shallow pan. Fry until chicken is done and liquid has almost evaporated. Pour chicken in a plate including sauce from frying. Serve hot.
