  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breats
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • juice and zest of 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, zest and juice of 1 lime, and 1/2 of the cilantro in a bowl. Place the chicken in the bowl, and turn/toss to coat. Marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.


  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the chicken into an oven safe pan or casserole dish, and pour the marinade over the chicken.
