Tips & Notes
Do you have a lot of leftover cilantro with this recipe? Serve up a side of Zesty Corn and Black Bean Salsa, which also uses a lime and cilantro dressing.
- Place chicken breasts in zipper-seal bag. Using a rolling pin or similar implement, flatten the thicker parts of the chicken so they match the thinner parts. You want a consistent thickness (no thinner than 3/4 of an inch) throughout to ensure the chicken cooks evenly.
- Mix marinade ingredients and pour over chicken. Marinate at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Remove from bag.
- On gas grill over medium-high heat, grill chicken breasts with lid down for six minutes. Turn and grill with the lid up 6 to 10 more minutes or until chicken reaches 170 degrees on a meat thermometer.
