Grilled Marinated Chicken

Another nice day, let's grill! On the menu - grilled, marinated chicken. The marinade was my own creation.

The Marinade

Amounts are approximate

  • 1/3 c olive oil
  • Handful fresh cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • 1.5 tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp chili powder
  • 1/3 tsp coriander
  • Juice of one lime.

Mix all ingredients except the lime juice and pour over chicken. Marinate in the fridge all day, and at least 4 hours. Add the lime juice 30 minutes before you are ready to cook.

Mmm, so fresh and flavorful. This marinade was delicious. I'm glad I grilled an extra piece of chicken as I'll be making chicken salad with it.

I served the chicken over sauteed spinach and with my Mexican Risotto.
