A pepper and lime marinade flavor this delicious broiled chicken main dish. Serve with salsa for dipping.
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.
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.
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.
I used this on our tuna steaks then grilled them. Its really good, but I always marinate longer than 30 minutes.
