This is a quick and tasty grilled chicken dish. The use of Cuban Mojo sauce perks up a boneless skinless chick breast. Use whatever spices you like to season the chicken before grilling. I chose a combination of Pasilla pepper, cumin, garlic pepper and salt. I served the chicken with a strawberry jicama salsa, baked plantains, grilled squash and mushrooms. As for a wine with all the acid in the sauce I selected a Jacuzzi Family Vineyards 2010 Arneis which has a lemon lime finish and is crispy when chilled. Aneis means "Little Rascal" in Italian. It can be a difficult grape to grow in Italy. Fortunately in Sonoma County it does very well.
