Yields 4 Servings
4 organic boneless skinless chicken breasts, 6 oz each
zest and juice of 1 lime, plus 1 lime cut into wedges
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, divided
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
Pound the thicker end of the chicken breast with a mallet to make it even with the thinner end. 2.
Combine the juice of 1 lime, lime zest, olive oil, 1/4 cup of the cilantro finely chopped, garlic and salt to a large glass or ceramic container with a lid, or a gallon size freezer bag. 3.
Coat the chicken well on both sides and marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour or as long as overnight, the longer the better, turning halfway.
When ready to cook, oil a grill or grill pan over medium to medium-high heat. 5.
Grill about 5 minutes on each side, or until charred and cooked through in the center. 6.
Remove and set aside on a platter and squeeze the remaining lime over the chicken. Garnish with the remaining fresh cilantro.
Air Fryer Directions:
Air fry in a single layer at 380 degrees for 5 minutes on each side.
