After yesterday’s meal, there was a lot of yellow rice left, but nothing else left-over to go with it. So, I decided to make my own version of Versailles‘ “#6 Famoso Pollo Versailles” (Famous Garlic Chicken).

Lemon/Lime Cilantro Chicken

At the BBQ my roommate KC hosted a couple weeks ago, his friend marinated and grilled some chicken that turned out quite well. Since I had a handful of lemons and some cilantro on hand, I tried to recreate the magic, or at least approximate it.

Tasty and cost effective!
