SOY-LIME CHICKEN

I am including this recipe on the Quick Fix blog even though the chicken needs to marinate at least a half hour.  Even so, the chicken takes less than an hour.  Or better still, make the marinade and refrigerate the chicken in the marinade while you are at work or out running errands, etc.  You can come home and have healthy chicken grilled in minutes.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Mix the lime juice, soy sauce, olive oil, cumin, and pepper flakes together with a fork or a whisk.  Place the mixture in a large zip-top food bag, turning over a couple of times to coat the chicken well.  Refrigerate at least 30 minutes up to 8 to 10 hours.

Drain the marinade from the chicken; grill (or broil) chicken 10 to 15 minutes until cooked thoroughly.


 To serve: Steam a vegetable, serve with pasta or rice, or slice atop a green salad to make an entree salad.

Note: The basic idea for this recipe is from an old Woman's Day magazine.
