Outstanding chicken marinade! Love the lime flavor, perfect with the other ingredients especially the cumin. Marinated overnight, grilled over charcoal and enjoyed moist and flavorful chicken - thanks for sharing a keeper!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound chicken breasts to even thickness. This is important!
  2. Combine all ingredients in a blender except chicken.
  3. Pour marinade over chicken and let sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour, up to 24 hours.
  4. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  5. Grill chicken breasts for 7-8 minutes per side, turning once. Since the thick parts have been flattened, the whole breast should develop a nice, caramelized texture without drying out.
  6. Remove from grill and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Slice for fajitas, or serve whole with lime wedges and cilantro.
