Jalapeño Lime Grilled Chicken

Still a Grillin’

To me, there is nothing better than spending time outside during this time of the year when the weather is just perfect. Nice, cool and comfortable and with no bugs. It’s a good time to grill outside and great time to eat outside.

This is a really great tasting recipe that is simple to make and is really great to eat. Actually, it is some really fine eating folks. Great for fajita wraps. Serve it with a Mexican rice dish, a cold corn salad and of course, ice cold beverages.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Juice of 2 limes

    Combine limejuice with remaining ingredients in a shallow bowl. Place chicken in marinade and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, not more than 2 hours.

        nice recipe full of great citrus flavors I love, I eat lime tortilla chips all the time, and love chicken coated with them, I cant wait to try this, I am sure the chicken is moist and so tender!!! Have a great Easter my friend 🙂 Claudia

        The key thing in this recipe is that flattening step. Boneless chicken breasts can be so dry from overcooking but when flattened they cook faster, more evenly and absorb more of that yummy marinade you have there…I LOVE lime with chicken. This looks just wonderful!
