Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup oil
  • 3 Tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, halved

Directions

Mix the oil, vinegar, and seasonings in small bowl. Place the chicken in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add marinade and turn to coat well.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer for extra flavor.

Remove chicken from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Grill over medium-high heat for 6 to 7 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through, turning frequently.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
