Lime and Jalapeno Chicken

Tangy, mildly spicy and tender, this chicken is delicious with black beans and salsa.


  • 1/4 cup lime juice, (about 2 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 1-1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of fat, tenders removed


Step 1
Whisk lime juice, oil, vinegar, cumin and salt in a small bowl. Stir in jalapeno. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over it, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, turning once, or overnight.
Step 2
Preheat grill to high heat. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the chicken until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let cool slightly; thinly slice crosswise. Serve warm or chilled.
