Pregnancy Cravings- Citrus and Tamarind Chicken

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 27 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 chicken breasts, skin removed
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 bottle Jarritos Tamarind Soda
  • 1 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon green Tabasco
  • 1 can cut green beans
  • 1 vidalia onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
  • 1 cup chopped celery


Place soda in saucepan, and bring to a rolling boil. Allow to reduce down 1/4 before you add brown sugar, Tabasco, lemon juice, and onions.

Thinly slice chicken breasts (this is easiest if they are still slightly frozen) and layer them atop the boiling mixture. Layer celery and cheese. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Add green beans, and cook until heated through.

Serve over rice, egg noodles, or even spaghetti, for a sweet and spicy treat, in just minutes!
