The idea behind this recipe is fantastic, though a bit bland as written (I did follow the recipe to a T the first time I tried it). I have never reviewed a recipe but really wanted to share my modifications that I believe make this recipe exceptional!
Firstly, I use about 4 lbs of chicken, cubed
Most importantly, I juice about 8 limes, to make between 1 1/2 - 2 cups of lime juice, strained.
I then add 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Then I add 1 tsp cumin, the sugar (doubled), pepper (doubled) 1 tso GROUND oregano *has a completely different flavor than the flakes*, 1/4 tsp of onion and garlic powder.
I mix all of this together and pour 3/4 of it over my chicken. Marinate for at least 30 minutes-hour.
Pour this mixture all into a large non-stick skilled and cook on high until the chicken begins to brown (will take awhile due to all the liquid).
Once it browns, I add the 2 green onions, salt and garlic. I cook this, while slowly adding more of the seasoned lime/vinegar mixture I saved, to add moisture.
Finished! I think this way has much more lime flavor and flavor over-all! Let me know if it works for you! Its my families favorite!
