Lime Grilled Chicken

Main Dishes



1/4 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice (approx. 2 to 3 small limes; do not use lime juice concentrate)
2 tsp. corn oil
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 clove garlic, minced, or 1 tsp.
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 (4-oz.) boneless chicken breast cutlets (pound to 1/4-inch thickness)
2 tsp. grated lime peel


In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, cilantro, garlic and chili powder. Pour into a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken cutlets and shake to coat well. Marinate in the refrigerator 6 to 8 hours, or overnight, gently shaking bag 2 to 3 times during marinating. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place chicken on grill rack and grill until juices run clear when meat is pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Discard remaining marinade. Sprinkle cooked chicken with lime peel. Serve topped with salsa over rice, wrapped in warm flour tortillas or sliced over salad greens.
