      Due to a time factor I played with the preparation of this recipe and it still came out quite delicious.

      Instead of marinating I rubbed all the herbs and spices onto the slightly pounded boneless chicken breasts then pan grilled them in the olive oil. after cooking and cooling slightly I cut up the chicken and used it top a salad which I made a lime/orange vingrette with chipotle and garlic to compliment the spices in the chicken. The combination was great though I could easily have eaten the chicken on its own as it was very flavorful. This one's a keeper! Thanks for sharing, made for ZWT 8 by one of The Wild Bunch

      I have made this Mexican chicken several times because we love the taste and it's super easy. Great choice for summer cookout paired with Mexican rice and corn on the cob. Yummy!

      I gladly add my 5 stars to this recipe, hoping it helps others to notice and try this simple and delicious marinade. Thank you, Pesto Lover, for sharing; my guests last weekend all loved this, served with Mexican Rice and Peruvian Bean Salad.
