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


  • 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


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.

We loved this recipe. Its simple to adjust..more time for thicker cuts. Don't overcook! Chicken turned out tender & juicy.
