After quite a few days of plate, after plate, after plate of traditional American comfort food, I decided it was time to cook something with a little different flavor. Something with some pizazz, something that reminded me of the warm yet breezy days of summer. Seasoned with adobo seasoning, roasted on a bed of sauteed onions and garlic and finished with a squeeze of lime and sprinkle of lime zest, this Adobo-Lime Chicken did just that. Close your eyes, take a bite and you just might think it’s July.
This chicken may have the word adobo in it but it is not to be confused with this Chicken Adobo. This recipe is called adobo-lime chicken because it calls for the adobo seasoning found in the Latin American aisle at the grocery store. In my never ending quest to try different spice blends, I find it odd that I have never tried this blend before. It is an all purpose seasoning with salt, oregano, pepper, cumin and garlic and frankly, it’s pretty darn delicious. I decided to buy the adobo seasoning with cumin but if you aren’t a cumin fan you can pick up any one of the other varieties.
