Chicken Breast Skewers with Mojo (Cuban Citrus Garlic Sauce)
This recipe bursts with the fresh orange and lime tanginess that gives it that authentic South of the Border favor.
2 lbs Chicken Breast
1/2 cup olive oil
8 large cloves of garlic, cut into paper thin slices
6 fresh squeezed limes
1/2 fresh squeezed orange
1/2 cup water
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp fresh oregano, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground pepper
3 tbsp chopped cilantro
Heat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Add in the garlic and cook until they are a light golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the lime juice, orange juice,water, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring the sauce to a boil then take off burner to let cool. Once the mixture is cool, add the cilantro. Reserve 1/2 of the mojo for brushing and the other 1/2 for serving.
Cut the Chicken Breast into 2 inch cubes and skewer them. Fired up grill to Direct Medium heat. Place chicken on a well oiled grill. Brush Mojo sauce onto the kabobs. Continue to turn and brush the sauce on the kabobs every few minutes until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Transfer to a serving dish and pour the reserve over the kabob to serve.
