Jalapeno Lime Chicken


Let's continue with our lime theme. However, we'll put the lime syrup on hold until our yogurt cubes are ready.

With jalapeno in the name you might think it would have some kick to it, but it is a very mellow flavor since the ribs and seeds are removed before dicing. The lime is the star of the show.

This recipe is pretty straightforward. Toss it together in the morning to marinade, then grill it up in the afternoon.

Jalapeno Lime Chicken
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (wear a latex glove to avoid skin irritation)
1 teaspoon cumin
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast

In a small bowl, combine everything but the chicken. Place your chicken in a bag or plastic container, then add the marinade mixture and shake to evenly coat the chicken. marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.

Preheat grill to medium high. Grill chicken 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in the center.

Makes 4 servings. We served ours with rice and steamed broccoli and carrots
