Lime-Jalapeno Chicken

Tangy, mildly spicy and tender, this chicken is delicious with black beans and salsa.

Serves 8

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 80 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup lime juice, (about 2 limes)
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 1-1 1 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat, tenders removed

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk lime juice, oil, vinegar, cumin and salt in a small bowl. Stir in jalapeno. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over it, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, turning once, or overnight.

Step 2

Preheat grill to high heat. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the chicken until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let cool slightly; thinly slice crosswise. Serve warm or chilled.
