DIRECTIONS

  • Chicken -- mix all the marinade ingredients in a large baggie, add the chicken and just let it marinade all day. At least 4 or more, up to 24 hours.
  • Make the Cilantro Sour Cream Sauce -- Add the sour cream, mayo, lime, garlic, cilantro, scallion, salt and pepper. Mix well and transfer to a small bowl, cover and chill. This can be made several hours in advance.
  • Make sure you let the chicken come to room temperature before grilling. You can grill them either outside or even on a grill pan. They should take (depending on the size) 5 minutes approximately per side. Remove to a plate and cover to let set before slicing to let the juices re distribute.
  • Polenta -- as the chicken cooks, make this great side dish. I follow the recipe on the box. But for the most part, bring the water and milk to a light boil, medium high heat add the polenta. Reduce to medium low and cook 15-20 minutes until creamy stirring every few minutes. Add the cheese a little cilantro as a garnish if you want and it is done. If you want, purchase quick cooking polenta, just use 1/2 water and milk according to directions and at the end add the cheese and cilantro if desired. Any brand you pick will work just fine.
  • Plate the polenta and top with a chicken breast thin sliced and a dollop of the Cilantro cream. It is perfect.
  • A nice green salad or you can make market vegetables. Use what is fresh. Corn on the cob is great, so are local beans.
