Steps

  • 1
    To make marinade, in shallow glass or plastic dish, or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all ingredients except chicken.
  • 2
    Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. Add chicken to marinade; turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 3
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Cover and grill chicken over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when centre of thickest part is cut (170ºF).

Expert Tips

  • Substitution: If you don't care for the taste of cilantro in the marinade, try using chopped fresh parsley instead.
  • Success: To use the leftover marinade as a sauce, boil it for 1 minute to destroy any bacteria that may have been transferred to it from the chicken.
  • Time Saver: No time to make the marinade? Purchase a tequila lime marinade to use instead.
