READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by canarygirl

This is a wonderful family favorite that I found on Parenthoodweb a couple of years ago. I have slightly adapted the original posted by Brooke Golightly. May be made on the grill or in the oven. Prep time includes marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine marinade ingredients, reserving 1/4 cup for basting.
  2. Place chicken in a large ziplock bag with marinade, and refrigerate for a couple of hours, turning periodically.
  3. Combine salsa ingredients and chill.
  4. Grill chicken breasts as you normally would, brushing with reserved marinade during grilling.
  5. The chicken may also be baked in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes, covered, or until cooked through.
  6. Serve chicken on a bed of rice, and spoon salsa over chicken.
  7. Garnish with chopped cilantro and lime wedges if desired.
