CUBAN MOJO CHICKEN

This is a really delicious "Chicken on the Grill" recipe that takes very little time but is so full of really bright flavors. Serve this on a bed of steamed green beans with fresh mint and you've got a party going on!! You'll feel better just thinking about how healthy it is!! Prep time is about 10 minutes (not including getting your grill of choice ready.) Grill the chicken about 4-5 minutes per side to an internal temp of 170 degrees. This is 4 servings.

CUBAN MOJO CHICKEN

1/4 C fresh orange juice (it makes a difference!!)
1/4 C fresh lime juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1/2 tsp sweet or smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
4 (5 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1. Stir together first 7 ingredients in a shallow bowl or zip-top plastic freezer bag; add chicken. Cover or seal and let stand for 20 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade, but reserving marinade for later use. Pat chicken dry with paper towels.
2. Grill and let stand for 5 minutes. Bring reserved marinade to a boil over medium high heat. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring often, Serve chicken with warm marinade.

TIP: You can also use this same recipe with Pork Tenderloin, but be sure to adjust cooking time. I look for an internal temp of 155 for pork. The chicken or the pork is also great with black beans and rice, or a black bean and corn salsa. Get festive and have some fun. Shrimp can also be substituted, but don't marinate for more than 10 minutes and cook only till shrimp are turning pink, do not over cook. Grilled pineapple is a great side dish!!
