I know, I know…Chicken three nights in a row. However, I think I changed it up enough each night.
I went to campus today around 11:30am to meet up with Tara to get some more studying in before my physics exam (3pm). I ate Pollo Tropical for lunch (1/4 chicken + 2 sides……still starving). I proceeded to go to the lawn behind Reitz union and laid around in the shade for a while. After my fair share of people watching and jamming on the Ipod, I went to the test and smoked it. I feel good, I feel confident.
My brother was also involved in a production at the Digital Worlds Institute. UF’s only hip-hop theater group, Signs of Life, performed and were phenomenal! I recorded a video of it, if anyone is interested just let me know.
- 4 FAT boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1X3 pieces
- 1/4 cup orange juice ( I used Simply Orange w/ Mango! )
- 4 tbsp soy sauce
- 2-3 tbsp lime juice
- 1-2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 1 package baby bella mushrooms
- 1 jalapeno, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
Combine ingredients in a bowl and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Place the chicken pieces and ingredients in separate marinating dishes. Pour a good portion of the marinade over everything. Refrigerate for 2+ hours (the longer the better). Set two large pans on medium heat (5-6). Put your chicken in one and everything else in the other (pour excess marinade into pans). Allow chicken to cook for about 6-7 minutes each side. Add a little salt and pepper to the veggies and mix around while they cook, keeping it covered.
Served with the good stuff and extra juices poured on top
