Grilled Lime Chicken over Organic Southwest Chopped Kit
Prep time: 240 minutes • Cook time: 20 minutes
Yields: 4 Servings
- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 Organic Southwest Chopped Salad Kit
A simple marinade turns plain chicken breasts into a tasty meal without a lot of effort. Just serve over our Organic Southwest Chopped Salad Kit for a complete meal! This recipe pairs beautifully with our Avocado Salsa.
Make the marinade by combining the lime juice, salt, pepper flakes, garlic and olive oil in a small bowl and whisking to blend.
If the chicken breasts vary greatly in thickness, place the chicken, one piece at a time, in a large plastic bag and lightly pound the flesh with a meat mallet or rolling pin to flatten to a relatively uniform thickness; this will facilitate even cooking.
Place the breasts in a large zipper bag and add the marinade, turning to coat all surfaces. Seal and refrigerate for 3 to 8 hours.
Heat a barbecue to a medium-hot fire. Remove the chicken from the marinade, discarding the excess. Grill the breasts to the desired degree of doneness; cooking time will depend on the thickness of the meat and the intensity of the heat.
Serve hot, over an Earthbound Farm Organic Southwest Chopped Salad Kit, or refrigerate, covered, for up to 3 days. The chicken is also delicious sliced in sandwiches or topped with Avocado Salsa.
