Cilantro Chicken

This is an easy but delicious grilled chicken recipe.   I love gardening so I always have a supply of fresh cilantro in the summer.  It’s easy to put together and absolutely delicious.  My kids and hubby devour this chicken.  I like to serve this with grilled veggies, a tossed green salad and a loaf of crusty French bread. 

Cilantro Chicken

Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts to a uniform thickness. (Honestly, I only do this sometimes.  Most of the time,  I just throw some chicken breasts in the bag. If you take the time to pound them to a uniform thickness, they will cook more evenly.) 

Place breasts (pounded or not!) in large zip lock bag. 

To the zip lock bag, add: 
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 Tbs honey
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1/4 cup lime juice

Seal the bag and turn breasts to coat evenly. Chill for 1 hour or overnight.  The lime juice tenderizes the chicken so they come off the grill moist, tender and delicious.
Cilantro Chicken BBQ them when you’re ready.

    You ROCK!!!
