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

Made this recipe last week when unseasonably warm weather inspired me to grill outside in January. It mixed up super quickly with my immersion blender. I didn't have any chipotle powder, so I subbed adobo from leftover chipotles I had in the fridge, but I was otherwise faithful to the recipe as written. My husband and I loved it. The chicken was mildly spicy, moist, and flavorful on night one, and I took the leftovers to work the next day for a Mexican-inspired salad. Definitely a keeper!

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.

We liked all the flavors in this, especially the lime - it's essential. I used less salt and oil and more garlic.

Yummy chicken! I marinated for several hours and then threw some thighs on the grill. Simple and delish. Thanks Pesto lover for a nice keeper. Made for ZWT8 - Family Picks.

This was soooo easy and very tasty. Even my extra picky friend enjoyed the flavors on this chicken. I tossed all of the ingredients into the mini processor, and let it rip. This is definitely a keeper! MAde for ZWT8

This was so tasty, served with jacket potatoes and sour cream. I love a marinade, you can start dinner in the morning and by dinner all you have to do it fry it and that's it! Made for ZWT8, The Fearless Red Dragons

Excellent! Very easy to make and so yummy. I even had Mexican oregano from the online store which I get masa harina from. It really makes a difference to European oregano.
Thanks for sharing!

Excellent recipe for grilled chicken. I love when recipes are so easy to prepare, yet still have that impressive quality. I marinated chicken legs overnight. I was glad I did this because I didn't make it home to fix dinner the next day and all my husband had to do was to throw the chicken on the grill! He saved me some so I could have it for lunch the next day. It was delicious. Made for ZWT8 Mexico. Thank you!
