Lime Marinade

30 Aug

Chris received a grill for his birthday this summer & was hoping to finally test it out at our apartment this weekend.

Unfortunately, “hurricane Irene” had other plans…

You can’t really tell from these pictures, but the wind was definitely blowing outside our kitchen window!

We already had the chicken thawed & the ingredients for a marinade, so I gave it a whirl on the grill pan!

We followed this recipe from Sparkpeople.com – all you need is lime juice, Italian dressing, garlic, basil, salt & pepper!

Combine all ingredients, then place the chicken in a plastic bag, pour the marinade on top, & let sit for at least 15 minutes (but of course you could do this hours in advance)!

I grilled each side of the chicken for about 6 minutes (per side) to get the “grill marks,” then finished cooking them through by placing them in the oven at 350* for about 20 minutes.

Chris & I both agreed that the cooking time was perfect & the marinade added tons of flavor!

Now, we need another recipe to try out on the grill! 😉

What’s YOUR favorite thing to grill?
