Today was Anguilla and I know Anguilla is before Antarctica alphabetically but I accidentally posted Antarctica first as we had it as dessert the same night we had this. This dish was incredible it has amazing texture and taste it was delicious. The rice base was very nice and I added more lime, thyme and butter than it asked for and I think that made it taste better. The stuffed chicken part was unbelievable as well though I had to use toothpicks to keep it together. We had a mushroom sauce with ours and that topped it off perfectly.
