I’m ready for warm weather, ready to grill… on my new deck. With Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, I decided make things a bit festive (last night) with a semi-Mexican dish. Time for Lime Chicken…

Lime Chicken

Lime Chicken

chicken breasts, 1/4 c. red wine vinegar, 2 limes, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 2 tsp. sugar, salt, pepper, handful of fresh cilantro, shredded lettuce (or mixed greens), diced tomatoes, sour cream, shredded Pepper Jack cheese

Juice and zest lime, mix in vinegar, garlic, sugar, salt and pepper. Add chicken breasts and marinate for a few hours. Grill, sauté or bake chicken. Remove from heat and add cheese to melt. Add a squeeze more of fresh lime juice. Serve on a bed of shredded lettuce, top with diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro and a dollop of sour cream.

*Serve with your favorite rice side dish.

What are your Cinco de Mayo plans?
