It looks like the warm weather is here to stay in Ohio and that means grilling season is well under way. Robert and I have been taking full advantage of our trusty gas grill and have been using it for anything and everything we can- burgers, pizza, vegetables, and this jalapeno lime grilled chicken.
This marinade comes from a recipe for chicken fajitas, which is absolutely scrumptious; but this sauce so tasty on it’s own that it works for just a simple grilled chicken. The ingredients are simple and it it comes together faster than you can say, “the jalapeno juice is burning my eye.”
Welcome June, and welcome summer. Lots more grilling recipes coming your way!
Lime Jalapeno Grilled Chicken
- ⅓ cup juice from 2 to 3 limes
- 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1½ teaspoons light brown sugar
- 1 jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, excess fat trimmed
1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the lime juice, vegetable oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, jalapeno, salt and pepper.
2. Place the chicken in a plastic resealable bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
3. When ready to make the chicken, heat the grill over medium high heat. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until juices just run clear and a meat thermometer registers 160 degrees. Remove from the grill. Cover with tin foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes and then serve.
