Spicy Grilled ChickenPosted: March 16, 2011
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.
