I’ve had this idea to make a chapati wrap with chicken strips, a shredded kind of light salad and a bit of rice. Or maybe with risotto and guacamole? Well, before I even try, I want to get the lemony chicken stript right.
This is my first attempt. I probably could have looked this up, and I’ve made something lemony before, but I think it’s more fun to come up with something on my own (^_^)
If this doesn’t work by the third try I’ll look something up.
So I marinated the chicken in: Juice of two limes, zest/grates of one lime, salt
Nothing fancy, thought it was a good idea to start simple and build up the flavours in the next round (^_^)
I could taste the lemon, salt was too much though.
Ooops! I put too much salt (-_-)
It was lemony,… but not exactly what I was looking for. It wasn’t savoury, just lemony. I think I’ll add a herb on the next try, and make the garlic a part of the marinade. The chicken breast meat was also a bit dry.
Any thoughts on how to tenderise chicken breast? Or at least a way to avoid it getting dry?
