Spicy Grilled Chicken

To go with our grilled skewered potatoes, I whipped up this new chicken recipe. We grill so often that I am always in need of new, fresh ideas. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and we loved it. The flavors were perfect together, grilled up well and is a recipe we will try again very soon!!!


Ingredients: (serves 6 adjust to your needs)
1/3 cup evoo
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

In a shallow glass dish, mix the oil, lime juice, lime zest, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Add chicken, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour, turning occasionally.
Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken for 6 to 8 minutes each side, or until juices run clear.

  1. I like this recipe very much because it is so fresh, uses fruit flavors to accentuate the meat taste, and it is so simple. The marinade has to give the chicken great moisture and flavor. We grill a lot and this recipe offers a different way to grill chicken: we will definitely try it and quite sure will love it. Thank you for the post.
