Spicy Grilled Chicken

 I discovered this recipe at allrecipes.com and enjoy the fact that it is very easy to make! Perfect for summer barbeques, we increased the lime and let it marinate overnight.








  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • Grated lime zest from one small lime
  • Juice from one small lime (the same lime can be used for the zest and the juice).
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


  1. In a shallow glass dish, mix the oil, lime juice, lime zest, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Butterfly the breasts, and optionally cut into strips.
  3. Add chicken, and turn to coat.
  4. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours, turning occasionally.
  5. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  6. Lightly oil the grill grate. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken for 6 to 8 minutes each side, or until juices run clear.
