Garlic Chicken on the Grill

Chicken breasts are grilled with a marinade of lemon or lime juice, garlic, and chili powder, along with oregano.

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
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Preparation:
  • Flatten chicken breasts; place each chicken breast between sheets or plastic wrap or food storage bags and pound gently with flat side of meat mallet until about 1/4-inch thick.
  • Cut each flattened chicken breast into strips about 1-inch in width. Place chicken strips in a glass baking dish or nonreactive shallow container.
  • Combine remaining ingredients; pour over chicken. Cover and chill chicken in marinade for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Thread chicken onto metal skewers or well-soaked wooden skewers. Grill over hot coals for 6 to 8 minutes, turning a few times and basting with remaining marinade. Serve with additional salsa, if desired.
Serves 4.
