Chicken and Garlic


"This is a yummy easy recipe that my kids love. Chicken pieces are fried in oil, then dressed with lime juice and cilantro in a dish that goes best served over rice. For added spice, add a few chilies when the garlic goes in."

this is great, I add a packet of goya sazon to the chicken.. my family loves this. I serve this with black beans and rice, fried yucca, and plantains.
