Grilled Lemon - Lime Chicken Breast
8 – boneless chicken breast, skinless
1/2 - cup vegetable oil
1/4 - cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 - cup fresh lime juice
1 – teaspoon lemon peel
1 – teaspoon lime peel
2 - large cloves garlic, minced
2 – tablespoon cilantro
1/2 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - teaspoon pepper
Rinse the chicken breast under cold water. Then pat dry with paper towels. Next,
place the breasts in a non-reactive container (either plastic, glass, ceramic,
or other non-metallic material). You may use a plastic zip lock bag also.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the vegetable oil, lemon juice, lime juice,
lemon peel, lime peel, garlic, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Pour lemon-lime
mixture into bowl or plastic bag. Cover or seal and place in a refrigerator.
Marinade in refrigerator between 2 to 6 hours (the longer the better). Turn the
chicken breast occasionally.
Prepare a medium-hot grill fire and well oiled.
Take the chicken out of marinade. Make sure you discard the marinade. Place the
breast on the grill and cook 5 to 6 minutes on each side, turning only once.
Total cooking time is 10 minutes. You can test by cutting into the breast or
until juices run clear.
