Grilled Lemon - Lime Chicken Breast Recipe

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.
