Creamy Cilantro Chicken with a Kick
This recipe was sooo good! My boyfriend and I both really enjoyed it. Changes I made were:
1. Peppers (see below)
2. Topped with some scallions at the end (good, but certainly not necessary).
3. The photo shows pasta, but I used medium-grain brown rice (easier to absorb the marinade than the pasta). It worked well--I would suggest white or brown rice instead of pasta.
4. Chicken breasts instead of thighs.
5. Squeezed the lime in the marinade in addition to the zest.
(The changes sound like a lot, but they are minor, and certainly optional).
For those of you who don't want anything too spicy, I would suggest using half of a jalapeno pepper instead of the two serranos. I used one whole large (de-seeded) jalapeno, and it was still a bit too spicy.
Really, the spiciness was the only issue. I'm not sure what happened with the folks who gave it one or two stars...
