Grilled Lime Jalapeno Chicken

Wonderful served over a bed of cilantro lime rice, cilantro lime orzo, or diced to use in tacos.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 medium jalapeno, finely diced
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, pounded to even thickness

Directions:

Whisk all ingredients, except the chicken in a large glass bowl. Add the chicken; coat well, cover, and refrigerate for two hours, turning once.

Preheat grill to high heat.

Grill the chicken until juices run clear, about 3 to 4 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the chicken pieces.

Deeli, do you think it would be just as good if I used chicken breasts? I am not fond of dark meat. Sounds really good and I will have plenty of cilantro from my garden soon.

I made the Lime Jalapeno chicken this weekend and served it up like Fajita's and it was great.

Elaine, yes, you can use chicken breasts! I wouldn't grill them for as long as you would cook dark meat though otherwise they would be too dry. Grill them 'just until' the juices run clear. :-)
