Our Slow-Cooked Cuban Mojo Chicken is insanely easy to make and will send you straight to flavor town, because this is the real deal! Shredded chicken that is tender and bursting with citrus notes of lime, oranges, and pineapple for a refreshing summer dinner when paired with a cilantro-mango salsa, rice, and black beans.
When planning cuban week, I knew I wanted to create a dish that used simple, clean, nutrient-dense, and fresh ingredients. So when Proper Good reached out about their NEW Beef Bone Broth, it was almost like a sign from the heavens ;)
To sum it up in one sentence, they provide ready-to-eat soups, bone broths, microwavable quinoa, and seasonings, to help you achieve a healthy lifestyle while keeping on-the-go.
Even as a food blogger, I get tired of cooking dinner and sometimes find myself either ending the night with a bowl of oatmeal or in the car headed to get takeout. But with Proper Good's subscription service, I can have nutrient-dense soups, that are seriously SO TASTY, sent directly to my front door. And within 90 seconds, stovetop or microwave, I have a delicious and satisfying meal without the extra effort.
Proper Good's Grass-Fed Beef Bone Broth is great for sipping as-is for a nutritious drink or using as the base in a variety of recipes. It has zero sugar and zero net carbs, yet is high in protein and can give you a boost in your daily energy!
Each serving has 7g protein, collagen sources, turmeric, organic veggies and apple cider vinegar, Keto-Friendly, Gluten-Free, and Dairy-Free. Learn more or shop now by clicking here.
Step 1: Toss together all ingredients in a large bowl, add in the chicken, and marinate. (Hardest part, completed. lol)
Step 2: Add the chicken to a large pot to simmer for 1-3 hours.
Step 3: Shred the chicken with two forks, or in a mixing bowl with the whisk attachment.
Thank you Proper Good for partnering with me on this recipe! As always, opinions are my own.
Great question! While you can use chicken bone broth, I find that slow cooking the chicken breasts in Proper Good's Beef Bone Broth adds more depth to the dish and gives you a similar feel to that of cuban pork without all the heavy fats and oils. And the longer you let the chicken marinate, the more flavor is will have after it's been cooked!
Being that the chicken is cuban-inspired, I find it delicious with a fresh citrus salsa, warmed black beans, and cooked basmati rice. For the citrus salsa, I will toss together finely diced mangoes, spring onions, cilantro, lime juice, red onion, salt, and black pepper, to taste. My only tip is to make sure the mangoes are semi-firm for a more crisp texture in the salsa to pair with the tender chicken.
OH! And if there's one thing I can recommend, it's to always serve the chicken with a fresh lime wedge! So much tastiness...
