- To make chicken, in a large bowl, whisk together first seven ingredients. Add chicken and toss to coat. Cover bowl and marinate for 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
- Preheat outdoor grill, stovetop grill pan or nonstick skillet.
- Skewer chicken pieces onto four metal or wooden skewers. Grill or cook skewers in a hot skillet for 5 to 7 minutes, until chicken is cooked through, turning frequently. (Make sure to soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes to prevent charring.)
- To make sauce, heat oil in a large, high-sided skillet (or wide saucepan) over medium heat. Add remaining minced garlic clove and jalapeno and cook 1 minute. Add remaining teaspoon of cumin and paprika and stir to coat. Add tomato sauce and evapourated milk, reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Remove grilled chicken from skewers. Add to tomato mixture and simmer 1 minute to heat through. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. Serve with rice. Yields about 1 cup of chicken and 1/2 cup of rice per serving.
