Herb & Citrus Grilled Chicken

Herb & Citrus Grilled Chicken
Printable Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes
Marinating time: 1-24 hours
Grill time: 10 minutes
Serves 2

2 chicken breasts, boneless & skinless
1 large cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
Juice of half a lime
Juice of half a lemon
1 heaping soup spoon of olive tapenade

1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a shallow baking dish or bowl, large enough for the chicken or in a zip lock baggie.

2. Add the chicken, being sure to coat well. Refrigerate until ready to grill. You can marinate from 4 -48 hours in the fridge. If you want to cook quicker than that, let the chicken sit in the marinade on the counter for 1 hour.

3. Preheat grill and cook chicken about 5 minutes per side over medium high heat. The chicken is done when it’s no longer pink in the center. I use my Griddler set to Griddle & High and spray with Mazola Simplicity or PAM for easier cleaning.
