Chicken made with Mojito Marinade

Mojito Marinade Ingredients

I was so excited to finally use some fresh mint from my garden for this Mojito Marinade by EatingWell. It's a pretty simple recipe and can be used on just about any kind of meat or seafood. I choose to make chicken this time and will try it with shrimp or scallops next time.

Chicken soaking in Mojito Marinade

The chicken soaked in the marinade for only one hour. I used my Foodsaver Marinator and that really makes a big difference -- it's like it had been soaking at least 3 or 4 hours.

Mojito Marinated Chicken

I almost forgot to mention; I forgot to put the oil in the marinade. Oops? Nah, I don't think so. The oil that was in the marinade was used to cook the meat in a frying pan. Since there's honey in the marinade, it created a really nice glazed and golden appearance.

Mojito Chicken with Coconut Lime Rice

I served the chicken with my own recipe for Coconut Lime Rice.
