My main goal for this recipe was to cook a juicy and flavorful chicken breast! I was very happy with the end result!
For the rice, add 2-3 tablespoons of oil to a skillet and heat to medium. Add the rice, onion, garlic and serrano whole. Saute until the rice begins to toast and onion and garlic become aromatic. Pour in the warm chicken broth. Add cilantro, lime zest, cumin, oregano, black pepper and salt to taste.
Warm your tomatillo salsa on low while the chicken cooks. Fluff the rice with a fork and mix in the peas and carrots, then cover once again.
Brining works well with both chicken and pork! The time does not reflect the brining time, so plan ahead when you prepare this recipe. It's worth the wait!
