Day 1: Grilled Chili Lime Chicken

Based on recipe.

A Classic Favorite at my house. For those who have been asking for this... here you go finally!



2 teaspoons lime zest
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small jalapeño chile, seeded, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
6 chicken thighs (1 1/4 lb)  (the original recipe calls for chicken breast but I personally prefer the texture and flavor using thighs.. if using breasts flatten with a mallet first and only marinate up to 10 hours)
Combine all ingredients in a zip lock bag and store in refridgerator and allow to marinate at least 3 hours but no longer than 24.
Heat Grill to medium and cook thighs until done. approximately 10 minutes.
Serving suggestion -  with Fresh lettuce and "This Aint No Tomatillo Cafe Rio Dressing" Tortilla strips, Pico De Gallo and Guacamole for a refreshing Salad.
