This simple chili lime marinade can work its magic in as little as an hour but if you think ahead, it’s 10 times better if you can let it sit in the fridge for a few hours but preferably overnight. Serve it up with baked potatoes or your favorite veggies and enjoy this tasty chili lime grilled chicken treat.
A great tip for grilling chicken and keeping it juicy is flattening the chicken breasts a little beforehand. This means they won’t dry out because that they are not on the heat for too long. If chicken breasts are their full thickness, it can take longer for them to cook through. That means that by the time the thicker part of the chicken is fully cooked, the outside has gone dry. But if your chicken breast is thinner because of flattening them out, then they won’t dry out.
One more perk of flattening the chicken breasts is your marinade will be able to penetrate the chicken quicker which is helpful in situations where you forgot to leave them marinate overnight or decided on a last-minute BBQ with family or friends. So remember, put in the bit of extra time to get perfect juicy results!
