How To Make Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken
Perfectly seared outside, this grilled cilantro lime chicken bursts into flavors and juices from the quick and flavorful DIY zesty marinade.
Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap or wax paper and pound to an even thickness with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
Mix the olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, cilantro, sugar, salt, pepper, and cumin together in a large bowl. Add the chicken and massage the marinade into the chicken.
Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
Heat your grill or grill pan to medium high heat and oil the grate with a paper towel.
Remove the chicken breasts from the refrigerator. Remove them from the marinade and pat them dry with paper towels. Coat the chicken breasts with some olive oil.
Grill the chicken for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side then let rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
