Ingredients Nutrition

  • Chicken and First Marinade
  • 8 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves, trimmed of fat and gristle
  • 1 12 large juicy limes, zest and juice (set all zest aside and the juice of one lime aside, the juice of the half a lime will be used in fir)
  • 12 large lime, juice only (scant 1/4 cup and if your limes are small, you'll need more of them)
  • 14 cup soy sauce (or tamari sauce)
  • 14 cup olive oil
  • 12 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Second Marinade
  • 1 large juicy lime, zest and juice, plus the remaining zest from the half you already juiced (zest the limes before juicing them)
  • 14 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 handful cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and pressed through a garlic press
  • fresly ground pepper


  1. Stir together the lime juice, soy sauce, olive oil and salt, then pour it over the chicken in a large dish, tossing the chicken to make sure it's all covered with the marinade. Cover the dish and leave the chicken in the fridge to marinate for an hour or so (too much longer than that and the acid in the lime juice can make it mushy).
  2. Whisk together the ingredients of the second marinade; set aside.
  3. Preheat your grill or broiler and grill or broil the chicken (drained from its first marinade, which you then discard) turning it once, until it's cooked through, around 3 or 4 minutes per side.
  4. Let the chicken rest for a minute, then slice it against the grain and toss it with the second marinade in a wide serving dish. Serve warm or at room temperature.
