Diva Dinner

Okay, I'm just going to jump right in and post my first official blog. Here is the dinner I made tonight. It was the first time I had made it and it was quite good. The hubby agreed.

Chicken Peanut Mole with Cilantro Citrus Rice

olive oil
2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
1 cup diced onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
14 oz chicken broth
1 can of tomatoes with green chiles
3 teaspoons of chili powder
1/4 peanut butter
1 tablespoon cocoa
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cilantro

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute chicken until golden brown and remove. Saute onion and garlic. Add all the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Add chicken and reduce and simmer five minutes. Serve over rice.

Cilantro Citrus Rice
3 cups cooked brown rice( cook according to package, adding 1 teaspoon of cumin and 1 teaspoon of salt to water while cooking)
1/2 cup orange marmalade
2 tablespoons cilantro

Fluff rice with a fork and mix in marmalade and cilantro.

***The only thing I may change next time is to add some crushed peanuts or use crunchy peanut butter instead. I also can't wait until summer to use fresh tomatoes and chiles for an even better flavor.
