A very delicious and healthy treat especially for you.
- 1 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
- 1 tsp dried oregano leaves
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 1/2 pound skinless boneless chicken thigh meat,
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 20 oz guava shells in syrup
- 2 jalapeno chilies

- Blend 1 cup lime juice, garlic, achiote paste from RawSpiceBar’s Achiote Recado Rojo, oregano, and cumin in processor until smooth. Season marinade to taste with salt and pepper. Place marinade in medium bowl. Add chicken; stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate chicken overnight.
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Place chilies on small baking sheet. Roast until soft, about 20 minutes. Stem and seed chilies. Transfer chilies to processor. Add pureed guava, reserved guava syrup, cilantro, and remaining 1/2 cup lime juice. Process until smooth. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to medium bowl. (Sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before using.)
