Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken

This is a mouth-watering recipe
that you will want to add to your repertoire of favorites!

Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken
....lip-smacking and succulent!
This is a recipe adapted from Paula Deen
and you will love it! I promise. 
We have been enjoying it throughout the summer.

Here is my favorite grill master
preparing our supper! 

1 c. finely chopped fresh cilantro

1 c. mayonnaise

½ c. extra-virgin olive oil

¼ c. lime juice
(fresh - I also add the zest of 2 limes)
2 t. ground cumin
1 t. salt
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
(I use tenderloins or slice the breasts in strips)
In a resealable plastic bag, combine cilantro, mayo, oil, lime juice, cumin and salt.
Add chicken, seal bag, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours.

Spray grill with nonstick nonflammable cooking spray.
 Preheat grill to medium heat (300-350).

Remove chicken from marinade, discard marinade.
Grill chicken, covered with grill lid,
for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until chicken is done.

 Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
