  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • zest from 1 lime

This is a delicious grilled chicken recipe that sings with garlic, lime and cilantro.


  • Grate zest and squeeze the juice from the lime into a glass or ceramic bowl.
  • Add cilantro, garlic, onion powder and olive oil.
  • Add the chicken breast to the bowl and spoon the marinade over the chicken until well coated.
  • Cover the the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  • Preheat the grill to medium heat or pre heat an oven broiler. Chicken may also be cooked over charcoal, which we prefer.
  • Place chicken on the grill or under the broiler and discard any remaining marinade.
  • Cook chicken for about 10 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
