Thinking about different things to do with grilled chicken and came up with this marinade! It was a hit first time out.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Whisk the lime juice, olive oil, chili powder, sage, oregano, and cumin together in a small bowl. Arrange the chicken breasts in a shallow glass container; pour the lime juice marinade over the chicken. Cover the container with plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 1/2 hours, turning the chicken every 30 minutes.
  2. 2 Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove the chicken to a platter and allow to come to room temperature. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. 3 Basting with the marinade, grill the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 8 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  4. Great marinade! It definitely has a southwestern flair to it. I only used 1 Tbsp. of chili powder and added a tsp. of smoked paprika. I pounded the chicken breasts down thin and let these marinate overnight. The flavor from the lime really came through but wasn't overpowering.
  5. I added minced garlic and it was very flavorful and delicious!
  6. I didn't have any limes, so I used 1 lemon per 2 limes for the recipe and also added garlic powder to it. Came out amazing. Will definitely use this again.
  7. Wicked moist and flavorful! I meant to grill it the same day but ended up baking it the next night. It was marinated over night. I breaded it and baked it 35 mins at 350 and it came out delicious! I baked it on a cookie rack over a baking sheet...Next time I'll try grilling - Read more ...
  8. I followed this recipe exactly and all we could taste was lime juice. I would never make this recipe again.
  9. Great recipe! The chicken came out moist and flavorful. I marinated mine for about 6 hours before grilling. Thanks for a new keeper!
  10. WOW!! This is a great recipe. I have been marinating my chicken in a similar marinade for a while since we have lime trees except I have used Old Bay but I love these seasonings. I do marinate for longer but it is good to remember that limes do somewhat cook chicken after too long.
