Spicy Lime Grilled Chicken



Serves 6


6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons freshly grated lime zest
1 teaspoon oregano, chopped
1/2-1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Generously season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper and transfer to a large, re-sealable bag.
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, garlic, onion powder, lime zest, oregano and red pepper flakes.
Pour marinade into plastic bag, seal and move bag around so that chicken is completely coated.
Refrigerate chicken for 1-4 hours.
When ready, preheat grill (or griddle) to medium-high and cook chicken breasts, flipping in the middle, until no longer pink. 6-8 minutes total.
