Grilled Chile-Lime Chicken

Grilled Chile-Lime Chicken is a delicious low fat and healthy choice.  We love to have this in the summer on a bed of brown rice or quinoa.  This is a Paleo recipe too!

Grilled Chile-Lime Chicken
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ¼ cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 small jalapeño chile, seeded, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ tsp sugar, splenda or honey
  1. To make marinade, in shallow glass or plastic dish, or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all ingredients except chicken.
  2. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about ¼ inch thick. Add chicken to marinade; turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 24 hours.
  3. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Cover and grill chicken over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
