Adobo Grilled Chicken and Vegis with Cilantro Lime Rice

We’ve made Adobo Pork Loin over Coconut Rice (With other options on Post). But, this is using same idea, but, with Grilled Vegis and Cilantro Rice. Great Combo of Flavors!
MARINADE is also great for Legs/Bone-In Breasts/Thighs, too!
Eat Adobo Chicken Alone. With Vegi Mix, or with Vegi Mix+Rice, or on Tacos (With Refried Bean Mix, below, is AMAZING!).

Eat Chicken on top of Vegis with few Spoons of Rice.

Adobo-Coco Pig N Rice (Adobo Pork N Coconut Rice)

Adobo Pork

*SEE NOTES*
1.5T Extra Virgin Olive Oil (For Browning Pork Loin)
1.5-2 lb. Pork LOIN (Use Loin!)
6T Soy Sauce (1/4c+2T)
6T Rice Vinegar (1/4c+2T).
4 Dried Bay Leaves
1tsp Garlic Powder
1/4tsp Coriander Powder
1T Dried Chives
1/4tsp Ground Pepper
1/4c Water (Optional, I skipped)

Rice Recipe:
2c Instant Rice
1 Chicken Broth Cube, crushed
1c Water
1c canned Coconut Milk
Splash of Lime Juice (Concentrate kind)

LIGHTLY/BARELY Salt and Pepper Pork Loin. Heat oil in skillet. Brown each side of pork (Starting with fat side down 1st). Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Crock Pot. Add in everything, EXCEPT Rice Recipe, to crock (Pork, set in fat side up). Cook on low 5-6 hours. Remove pork, slice. Serve over rice. You may add 1/2tsp juice from crock (IT GOES A LONG WAY!!!**).
Rice: In microwave dish, add in rice, water, coconut milk, crushed broth cube. Microwave according to instructions. Allow to sit a minute. Splash with Lime Juice, toss with fork. Serve slice over rice.

**I wouldn’t recommend shredding pork and adding back to crock with juice! Especially, if skipping water. Otherwise, it may be too salty. The juice goes a long way. Meant for cooking it, thick pork. I would remove pork, slice thick, and serve over rice. Spoon on a little juice, as needed, if you want more.

Another Cooking Option: I was going to add 1/2c, or so, of Unsweetened canned Coconut Milk into the Pork Adobo Recipe (But, decided on Coconut Rice). You can do so, skipping water. Try:
Above Recipe, plus:
1/2c TO 1 can Unsweetened Coconut Milk (To your taste)
Whole Mushrooms (Last 30-35minutes)
Serve over Rice cooked in Broth (Or 1/2Broth 1/2Water) + Splash of Lime.

Chipotle Roll-AY! (Chipotle Chicken and Rice Wraps)

adobochickeneggroll

4 Chicken Breasts (I use frozen)
1-2 can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (Entire can with sauce, mince peppers)- I only use 1 can.
1 tsp Cumin
*Optional: 1/2 cup total Peppers (Ex: Green, red, Yellow), sliced thin
*Optional: 1/2 of SMALL onion, sliced thin
Rice:
2 cups Minute Instant Brown Rice
Good handful Cilantro, minced
About 4 good splashes of Lime Juice (Fridge concentrate kind)
2 Beef Broth Cubes, crushed (1 per cup water used for rice)
Egg Rolls (Or softshells)
Jarred Jalapenos, minced (Optional)
Throw chicken, cumin, salt, pepper, peppers, onion in crockpot. I only use 1 can Chipotle Peppers with Adobo, but, you may want one more. Spicier, tho. Cook until chicken is done. Shred chicken. Add back into crock. Mix well. Prepare rice. I microwave in microwave safe bowl with microwave safe lid. I add water to rice (As box suggests). I add the crushed broth, cilantro, and lime. Stir. I cook according to box. But, halfway through I stir, then finish cooking. When done I stir again, taste test, make sure it has nice lime flavor (Offset adobo). If not, add more. Stir, set aside covered a few minutes.
Fill eggrolls with chicken mixture and rice mixture. Top with minced jalapenoes. Wet corners, wrap up. Spray skillet with butter cooking spray. Brown all sides. When done, I always sprinkle lightly with garlic powder. Serve with sour cream.
