Number of Servings: 19


    4 halves boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

    3/8 cup chopped green onions
    2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1.5 teaspoons olive oil
    1.5 teaspoons fresh lime juice
    1.5 teaspoons black soy sauce
    1/4 teaspoon salt (I use none)
    1/4 teaspoon allspice
    1/4 teaspoon thyme dried (1/2 t. fresh)
    dash cinnamon
    dash black pepper
    1 small clove garlic
    1/4 habanero pepper (more or less to taste)
    or substitute ancho chili powder

    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup chicken stock


Purchase chicken, or cut and prepare yourself
Wash and dry, set aside

Put all spice mixture into blender and pulverize. Add to large frying pan, add poaching liquid (water and chicken stock) and bring just below the boiling point. Add chicken, large side down in one flat layer (can poach in two batches with smaller pan).
Cover, simmer for 3-5 minutes depending on thickness, turn, and poach another couple of minutes. Turn off heat, test to make sure cooked through.

Remove from liquid, cool and chill.

Reduce the sauce and use in a fresh fruit salsa to accompany your cold chicken.

Take a cutting board, slice the chicken on the diagonal and use for sandwiches on your picnic.
