Mexican Lime Grilled Chicken

grilled lime chicken with pineapple salsa tortillas (1 of 1)

Because you can never have enough Mexican recipes, and because we all know I am Mexican food obsessed – here’s one more for you!

This is a very versatile recipe that you can use for anything from nachos to salads or as I’ve made it here served with my grilled pineapple salsa and homemade chia and flax seed tortillas.

I love share food and there is nothing better than a Mexican themed BBQ or dinner party with good friends enjoying and sharing great food full of flavour and this recipe works perfectly – maybe even with a jug of margarita if your really feeling like getting into the theme of it!

The kids absolutely love this recipe and the spice level can be adjusted to your preference, I’m currently trying to get the twins used to more spice – without much success so far but I add a little extra each time I make it, they cant be born in Asia and hate spicy food!!

What you’ll need

2 chicken breasts
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 1 ½ -2 limes
1 clove crushed garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
½-1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp cumin powder
Sea salt and cracked pepper

How to

– In a small container with lid marinate chicken breasts in lime zest, juice, garlic, oil, chilli powder, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper and set aside in the fridge for at least 2 hours – the longer the better
– Once ready to cook fry chicken in a hot grill pan for 2 mins each side until browned, reduce heat to low and cover chicken for 10 minutes until cooked through
– Slice or dice chicken to serve – As pictured here cube chicken mixed with pineapple salsa and wrap in tortilla with some cheese and guacamole
