This month, we are travelling to the Caribbean with a very simple recipe - Mojito Chicken.

This recipe is so easy and so fool-proof that even the laziest of cooks can make it!

What makes it so special? It is the rum! Try spiced or flavoured rum for an exotic twist or replace with tequila for a more intense flavour. 

However if you do not drink or you do not have rum at hand, never fear. You can simply leave it out and the Mojito chicken will taste just as great!

Our vegetarian subscribers need not fear, we have a great Mango and Pineapple Salsa recipe as well.

  • 10g (1 tbs) Carribean Jerk Spice Blend

  • 30ml (1oz) of rum

  • 1 tsp sugar
