blackened chicken & cilantro-lime rice
ok, blackened chicken & cilantro-lime rice. another wonderful discovery on pinterest! seriously one of the best meals i have made lately. i even ate all the leftovers by myself. and, was sorry when i had eaten it all. ~sigh.
cilantro, limes, quinoa, and seasoned chicken... oops forgot the chicken broth.
i found the recipe on sarcastic cooking by stefanie. a wonderful blog with lots of good recipes. so far this is my favorite... and that has nothing to do with it is the only one i have made so far.
it only took me 25 minutes start to finish. gotta love that. plus it was deeelicious. gotta love that. i followed the recipe exactly. even put the chicken in and left it for 7 minutes each side without peeking or checking. i just trusted. my husband was impressed. also, if you have never made quinoa (pronounced: keenwah), you really should give it a try. it is quick, easy, tasty, and healthy. bonus. i just about love anything with lime and/or cilantro, so this makes me a little partial to the recipe. if you don't like lime or cilantro, you could just make the quinoa with the chicken broth or add other herbs. also, i did make the avocado cream sauce. love it as well. perfect compliment to the spices on the chicken.
|my final wonderful dish. |
the lighting isn't the greatest... but the food was!

give it a try. let me know what you think.
happy, well, wednesday now!
