Notes

tonight I made dinner at home using a Trader Joe's simmering sauce called "Cuban Mojito." Trader Joe's captured the flavors of a mojito in a simmering sauce. I used this sauce as a marinade rather than a sauce for my chicken to simmer in.

Here's the recipe for my Cuban Mojito Chicken with cilantro black bean & corn rice.
