Pepper-Lime Chicken

Ingredients
6
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/3
cup lime juice
3
tablespoons cooking oil
1
teaspoon dried thyme or basil, crushed
1/2
teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1/4
teaspoon salt
2
 
Bottled salsa (optional)
 
Lime wedges (optional)

Directions

  1. Place chicken breast halves in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, stir together lime peel, lime juice, oil, thyme, pepper, salt, and garlic. Pour over chicken; seal bag. Marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Drain chicken, reserving marinade. Place chicken on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat about 6 minutes or until light brown.
  3. Turn chicken and brush lightly with reserved marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Broil for 6 to 8 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F). If desired, serve with salsa and lime wedges. Makes 6 servings.
