Grilled Chicken with Cilantro Lime Marinade

This chicken is a great success, it is very tender when this marinate is used! Excellent for Salad ( lunch) or to use as a dinner dish with vegetable sides or baked sweet or fingerling potatoes. It is easy:))


6 pieces Chicken Breast
1 bunch Cilantro chopped
1 teaspoon Garlic minced
1 tablespoon chipotle pepper puree (Whole foods or Central Market if not don’t worry just use some roasted Red Bell pepper with some added smoked barbeque souce ( 1tbsp))
1 tablespoon Honey
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/3 cup Rice Vinegar
1/4 cup Fresh Lime Juice
1 cup Salad Oil


Prep Time : 20 min
Cook Time : 18 min
Ready Time : 38 min
Servings :
6 servings

Step 1:

You can use as many Chicken breast you want I have used for this amount marinate only 4 large breast. I have cleaned all the fat around the breast and cut them into two strips ( but not to thin Strips) and put the cleaned and washed breast into the Ziploc Bag ( i love using Ziploc bags) for marinating. We are going to prepare our marinade mix for our chicken to be marinated. Follow step 2.

Step 2:

Place all the ingredients in a cup, except cilantro.  After everything i blended well add cilantro last and mix again.  It should be bright with a smooth creamy consistency add to Chicken and let it stand for few hours before grilling.

Step 3:

Preheat your Outdoor Grill ahead of time and grilling your meat depends on the thickness of your meat as well. After I put Pam Grilling spray on my Grilling tray, place the chicken on the tray until each side is golden on medium high heat (for 10 -12 minutes)and then lower it to get the inside done for  3 minutes more.
