Lime and Jalapeno Chicken

Lime and Jalapeno Chicken

1/4 cup lime juice, (about 2 limes)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 jalapeno, sliced
1-1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of fat, tenders removed

Whisk lime juice, oil, vinegar, cumin and salt in a small bowl. Stir in jalapeno. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over it, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, turning once, or overnight.

Preheat grill to high heat. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the chicken until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let cool slightly; thinly slice crosswise. Serve warm or chilled.

Tonight, I’m serving the chicken topped with salsa with a dash of old bay seasoning alongside black beans & rice, garden salad and fresh fruit compote.
