Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken

This chicken was great, in fact it was so great that the smell distracted me and I forgot to take a picture. ;-)  I did mine in a skillet on the stove because it is raining, I just poured it all straight into the skillet and let it cook down.  Hubby declared that it was his favorite part of the meal.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 heaping TBS fresh chopped cilantro
3 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano or 1 TBS fresh chopped oregano
salt and pepper to taste
2 TBS fresh lime juice
Mix fresh cilantro, olive oil, seasonings, and lime juice.
Next, hand rub the mixture over the chicken.
Marinate the chicken for as long as it takes to heat your grill.
Then grill on 400 degrees (adjusting the heat as needed) until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, turning the chicken occasionally.
