Kara's Cilantro Chicken

We liked this flavorful chicken, but you have to like lime and cilantro to like it too. It's nice and easy to throw together. I found it at Delish.com. Next time I'll make a little more sauce to serve on top of it.  
Kara's Cilantro Chicken

4 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breast, or other chicken
3/4 c. freshly squeezed lime juice (Do not substitute)
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 bunches fresh cilantro, rinsed and lightly chopped
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 t. salt, to taste
1/4 t. ground black pepper, to taste

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place chicken in a gallon ziploc bag.

Put all other remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until well blended.

Pour blended ingredients over chicken in bag or dish

Cook on a bbq of medium-low to medium heat for approximately 12 minutes and then turn over and cook for another 12 minutes or until done. Juices should run clear when cut.

  5. I used to hate cilantro after eating it almost daily when I was in Ecuador for a month, and I didn't eat it for years. Don't know how I started to like it, but now I do. :)
