We  love mojitos! And I don’t think they will ever go out of style, as long as the rum keeps flowing.  With the elements of lime and mint, it is both refreshing and cooling.

And it is easy to make chicken breast much the same way, with a marinade that has the components of a mojito, as well as hints of other flavors from the Caribbean.

I served this chicken  with my recipe for Poppyseed coleslaw (which will post on Sunday) as well as a vegan black bean vegetable curry (which I will post for Meatless Monday). Each of them has tropical flavor and go perfectly together.

It promises to be a very nice weekend coming up and I know many of you might be breaking your grills out of storage for the season. We love to grill and this season promises to be filled with fun recipes for that. As you know, I make my own sauces so you won’t have to deal with eating the same thing all the time or doctoring up bottled sauce.

The chicken in this recipe is also great sliced and put on Cuban bread or something like Ciabatta to make a great and flavorful, but deliciously different, panini. Sandwiches make great casual food and are very much welcomed on busy weekends, so having the chicken cooked ahead can make an easy to prepare meal for the next day.

I do hope you like this one!
