Ingredients

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1¼ lb)

2 teaspoons grated lime peel

1/4 cup lime juice

1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 small jalapeño chile, seeded, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

Instructions

1. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about ¼ inch thick.

2. In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all remaining ingredients. Add chicken to marinade; turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 24 hours.

3. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center.

TIME-SAVER:

No time to make the marinade? Purchase a Demitri’s Classic to use instead.
