Meal #2

I modified this for Major and Boy by adding the chicken to corn tortillas with black beans, avocado, and fresh mango salsa. Steamed veggies added to Boy’s plate as he picks and chooses through the taco to find what he’s in the mood for.

Grilled Cilantro- Lime Chicken

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Serves: 4

1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 bone-in chicken breast halves (8 ounces each), skinned
ground black pepper
lime wedges, for serving

1. In a shallow baking dish, mix the lime juice, cilantro, and oil. Season the chicken to taste with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the lime mixture and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator, turning once or twice, for about 4 hours.
2. Heat a barbecue grill to medium-hot, or preheat the broiler and coat a broiler-pan rack with cooking spray. Grill or broil the chicken, turning once, 10 to 12 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 170 F and the juices run clear. Serve with the lime wedges.
