Simple Grilled Chicken with Lime

Recipe from: cooking club magazine

This chicken was very simple to make and has a pleasant flavor. It pairs very well with some herbed basmati rice my dad and I discovered from Trader Joe’s, which I embellished with a little onion and garlic powder and some lime juice. I delight to cook with limes! I think they give things umami.


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 jalapeno chiles, minced
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tbsps fresh cilantro, chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 8 boneless chicken breast halves


Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Add chicken breast halves and let marinate for 1-4 hours. Grill the chicken over medium heat or coals for 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink in the center, turning once.
