This marinade is great for grilled chicken but you could try it with pork or fish also.

How to Make Cilantro Lime Marinade

Step-by-Step

  1. Place marinade ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
    Add marinade and chicken to a large Ziploc bag.
    Refrigerate for 6-8 hours, turning occasionally.

    Remove chicken and discard marinade. Grill over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side.
  2. These are the wraps I made with the grilled chicken. I sliced the breasts, topped them with a black bean and corn salsa, and spooned a cumin sour cream sauce on top. Wrapped it all up in a flour tortilla. Yum!
