Sweet chicken with lime :: Pollo dulce con lima

We always end up eating either roasted or grilled chicken. Why not to try something different? There you go, plus it's cheap! (Oh, and it's got garlic this time hehehe do you remember?)

Ingredients (4 px)
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 limes
  • 60 gr brown sugar
  • 1 dl olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 4 cups of rice (=8 dl)
  • 100 gr of onion
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • salt
  • dried apricots
  • raisins

Make the juice of 2 limes. Choose a container and pour it in. Add the cinnamon, the brown sugar and the olive oil. Blend it (as you know I like crystal containers so I don’t use metal tools to avoid scratching).
Get the chicken breasts and cut them into strips. 
Now put the chicken into the container with the mixture and marinate in cold for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, put the chicken in a pan with its juice and keep five minutes over high heat. Then down to low heat and let caramelize the chicken with the lime.
Grab a saucepan and boil water to make the rice. NOTE: for each cup of rice, add 3 cups of water. When the water is boiling, add the sweets onion, the garlic and the rice. Let the rice cook. Once done stain it.
Get the pan where you made the chicken and put the rice. Add the dried apricots, previously diced, and the raisins. Cook everything together for 5 minutes over medium heat.
Done! And if you want to make the chicken a little bit more glamorous dish, grab a glass, put the rice in it, flip the glass and you get a different way of serving the rice with the chicken.
Hope you like it Spanish kitchenetters!
