Recipe Ingredients for Chipotle Grilled Chicken

16 oz Chicken Breast Fillets Boneless Skinless
3 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 tsp Chili Powder

Recipe Directions for Chipotle Grilled Chicken

  1. Mix chili or chipotle powder, olive oil and lime juice in a shallow bowl.

  2. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of wax paper. Use a meat pounder to pound the breasts to an even thickness of about 1/2 inch. Cut off excess fat. If you are starting with 2 half-pound chicken breast halves, cut each one in half so that you have 4 pieces (to better fit the buns). Place the chicken breasts in the marinade, turning to coat. Cover with plastic wrap. Let marinate for at least 15 minutes, preferably an hour.

  3. Heat your grill on high heat if you are using a gas grill, or prepare coals for direct heat if you are using charcoal. You can also use a cast-iron grill pan on your stove if you do not have a grill. Grill the chicken pieces a couple minutes on each side, until cooked through.
