Recipe by LifeIsGood

This is a great grilling recipe for when you're short on time but still want a flavorful meal. It's an easy one! Notes: You can grill the chicken on your stovetop, too. I sliced the chicken and served it over a green salad.

This is a great basic recipe that really is super easy! I mixed the jerk seasoning in with the lime juice and oil and marinated the chicken for about a hour. It was flavorful and zesty. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
