Cilantro Chicken

Submitted by: CHUNKYCHOCOBO

Introduction

This is a recipe born of me not going to the store one day. I threw some ingredients into a skillet and this family fave was born! I have tweaked it over the years by adding the lime and switching to brown rice. This is a recipe born of me not going to the store one day.

  • Made this last night... was very good. I would however save some fresh cilantro to sprinkle on top as a garnish. Would also be good with some sort of salsa!! - 2/6/09
