Chili Lime Cumin Grilled Chicken

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.
