  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

For the Marinade

  • 1 clove garlic
  • juice of one lime
  • zest of one lime finely grated
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce optional
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

For the panning wraps

  • 2 small red peppers
  • 4 large tortilla wraps
  • 1 1/2 ounces of mozzarella or monterey jack cheese per tortilla


To marinate the chicken

  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a ziploc bag.
  2. Pound the chicken breasts to a thickness of 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch. Add the chicken breasts to the bag with the marinade.
  3. Toss well to coat the chicken in the marinade, then set aside for only 10-15 minutes before searing them on a preheated two-sided grill (top and bottom heating) for about 4 minutes.

To prepare the panini wraps

  1. Cut the peppers in large slices and grill them for a couple of minutes on the two-sided grill.
  2. Slice the peppers and chicken and roll them in them inside the tortillas along with the cheese.
  3. Return to the two-sided grill and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted and there are good grill marks on the tortilla. Serve with homemade salsa and lime guocamole.
