Mexican Grilled Chicken

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Pesto lover

We love this chicken. The marinade whips up in a minute in the food processor or blender. Preparation time does not include time to marinate.

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
