Mexican Grilled Chicken

posted in: Recipes 0

I love Paprika. I just do. And the smell of chicken grilling after being tossed in it, it makes my mouth water. This recipe is one of my family's favorite, because it's healthy and tasty.


- 3 Chicken breasts, butterflied
- Juice of 1/2 Lime
- 2 Tablespoons of Paprika
- 1 Tablespoons of Chili Powder
- 1 Tablespoons of Garlic Salt
- 1/2 Tablespoons of Onion Powder
- 1/2 Tablespoons of Cumin
- 2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
- 1/2 Cup of Cheese (cheddar or Monterey Jack)

Pico de gallo (optional)

To start, put the chicken in a casserole dish, or something with edges.

Add all the remaining ingredients except for the cheese and work into the chicken. I really make sure that the seasoning is spread evenly across the meat.

Let this sit for about 10 minutes.

Over a hot grill, add the chicken and cook on each side for about 5 minutes. Since the chicken is butterflied, it will cook fast. And depending on your grill, you might want to stand guard and make sure you're checking it.

For the final 2 minutes of cook time, add you cheese so it can start to melt.

Once it's done, I like to serve mine over Spanish rice and covered with my Pico de gallo, it so good!
