Ingredients:  
4 small, boned, skinless chicken breasts
1 small onion
at least 1 clove garlic
2T. chopped cilantro leaves
4 T. olive oil or butter(or a mixture of the two)
salt and pepper

Directions:
Directions:
Chop the onion and garlic, and fry them together in the olive oil and/or butter until the onion is, in the Spanish term, 'crystalline' (tender and transparent). Cut the chicken into cubes about 1-inch. Fry with the onion and garlic until the chicken is cooked through: this should take no more than 5-10 min, depending on the temperature and the size of the cubed chicken. The meat should be browned slightly on the outside, but only in places. Add the chopped cilantro leaves, stir for a few seconds to coat; serve. The pan juices are the usual sauce; for a much stronger-flavored (and darker-colored) sauce, deglaze the pan with half a glass of white wine or vermouth. Serve with plain boiled rice: enough for 4-6 people, depending on what else you are serving.
