2
6 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1/4
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4
cup snipped fresh cilantro

Directions
  1. Halve chicken breasts horizontally. Sprinkle chicken with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper; place in a self-sealing plastic bag set in a shallow dish.
  2. For marinade, in a medium bowl whisk together cilantro, lime peel, lime juice, olive oil, honey, and ginger. Pour over chicken in bag. Seal bag; turn to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, for garlic mayonnaise in a small bowl combine mayonnaise and garlic. Cover and chill.
