Garlicky Chicken Breasts
This recipe can be completed in a few minutes... We use chicken breasts grilled with a seasoning of lemon juice, garlic, and chili powder, along with oregano. Collect the following ingredients:
4 boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup purchased salsa or picante sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon dried leaf oregano, crumbled
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Combine all of the ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cover and chill chicken in the marinade for 1 to 2 hours. Next, relax from work, have a cool drink and think about firing up the grill.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and place covered on a plate. Boil the remaining marinade for 2 minutes. With the grill at medium-hot temperature, place the chicken on the hot grates for 6 to 8 minutes, turning a few times and basting with remaining marinade. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken is cooked to 150° to 160° in the thickest part of the meat. Serve moist and tender. Serves 4.
