Lime-Jalapeno Chicken


From EatingWell:  June/July 2005

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

8 servings, about 1.5 ounces each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes (including 1 hour marinating time)



  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.
  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.
