MEXICAN GRILLED CHICKEN

t’s an older recipe sir, but it still checks out … This was the only recipe from my very old blogger site.

So I tried to make paleo tortillas and do fajitas for dinner tonight. I used the recipe from Fast Paleo. The batter was way too thick at first so I added about 1/4 cup of water (Wrong move). It made an interesting crepe like thing, not really a tortilla though. SO I didn’t eat them for dinner. I did however make some guacamole and saute some peppers and onions and grilled some chicken that I did in the simple marinade below.

Mexican Grilled Chicken

Ingredients

2 chicken boneless skinless breasts (or 4 thighs)

Juice of 2 limes

1 Tablespoon hot sauce (I like Cholula for this)

1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano

1 Clove Garlic - minced

about 1/2 teaspoon of salt

4 or 5 grinds of black pepper

about 1/4 cup olive oil (no need to use the best stuff here)

Instructions

  1. Add everything except the chicken and the oil in a bowl and mix.

  2. Whisk while drizzling in the olive oil to create an emulsion.

  3. If the chicken breast are thick butterfly them or hammer them out to get them 1/4 inch or less.

  4. Add chicken and marinade in a zip-top bag and place in a bowl and into the fridge.

  5. Marinade for at least 2 hours, I like about 4.

  6. Grill on a hot grill about 5 minutes on a side, let rest of 10 minutes, slice and enjoy.
