Chili Lime Cumin Grilled Chicken. A super simple but very flavourful marinade to use for effortless grilled chicken or pork.
You can’t have too many simple marinades for grilled chicken and this one is quick, easy and very tasty. A quick dip in this marinade for 15-20 minutes and another 10 or so on the grill and this is dinner in about a half hour.
We serve ours with a great pasta salad or a garden salad for a quick summer workday meal off the grill.
I almost always plan to grill an extra chicken breast when using this recipe. Simply so that I can make one of my favorite chicken salad sandwiches the next day for lunch.
I mix it with some homemade lime chive mayonnaise and chopped red pepper and serve it on lightly toasted whole wheat bread for a very satisfying mid-day meal.
This recipe is great with a made ahead pasta or potato salad. With one of these recipes made in advance, you can have dinner on the table in no time.
