Ingredients

1/2 c
onion, chopped
1/3 c
lime juice
6 clove
garlic, minced
1 tsp
dried oregano
1 tsp
ground cumin
1/2 tsp
dried thyme

6
boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 Tbsp
chopped fresh cilanto, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine onion, lime juice, and garlic in food processor or blender. Process until onion is finely minced.
2
Transfer to resealable plastic food storage bag. Add oregano, cumin, thyme, and red pepper. Knead bag until well blended.
3
Place chicken in bag; press out air and seal. Turn to coat chicken with marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
4
Spray grid with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare grill for direct cooking. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.
5
Place chicken on grid 3 to 4 inches from medium-hot coals. Grill 5-7 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink in the center. Transfer to serving plate and sprinkle with cilantro.

Note: I have cooked this chicken on a George Forman grill as well. It tastes better over coals -- all grilled food does -- but it works either way.
