I was rummaging around in my fridge for ideas for our dinner tonight. What’s on the menu? Chicken! We eat a lot of chicken around here — it’s the main non-veg item we cook. Wanting some zing, I decided to whip up a marinade of fresh cilantro, garlic and lime. Technically, I basted the chicken (kabobs) after they had cooked a little in the oven. Ideally, I’d like to have marinated the chicken the night before, but, alas, I didn’t really plan ahead with this meal (like most other meals I prepare).
This is a great, quick way to add flavour to your meat or poultry. If you’re not a fan of cilantro, however, this isn’t for you.
