Chicken and marinade

  • 1.5 lbs chicken breast, the thin cut will work well too
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • Juice from 1 lime about 1 tablespoon
  • 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

    Pineapple Jalapeno Salsa

    • 1 cup grilled and diced pineapple
    • 1 cup grilled sweet corn
    • 1 tablespoon diced jalapeno
    • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
    • 1/3 cup diced shallots
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Pinch salt


    • Preheat your grill to 400F degrees.
    • If your chicken breasts are thick, butterfly them and add them to a Ziploc bag. Gently pound the chicken using the soft side of a mallet. You will want the chicken to be about ¼ inch thick.
    • Once the chicken is pounded thin, add the olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, thinly sliced garlic, chopped cilantro, and salt and pepper to the Ziploc bag.
    • Zip the bag closed and massage the chicken making sure it is evenly coated in the marinade.
    • Let the chicken marinate for 20-25 minutes before grilling. While the chicken is marinating, you’ll prepare the salsa.
    • Dice the grilled pineapple into small evenly sized cubes. Add it to a mixing bowl.
    • Next, finely dice the shallots and jalapeno. Add them to the bowl with the pineapple.
    • Dice the red pepper and remove the corn kernels from the cob. Add everything to the mixing bowl along with a pinch of salt. Canned corn will work fine too!
    • Add the lime juice and gently combine all of the ingredients. Once well combined set aside.
    • Carefully place a sheet of foil on the heated grill.
    • Place the chicken on the foil, since it is well coated in the olive oil mixture it will not stick.
    • Grill for about 3 minutes on each side. Since it is pounded thin, it will cook pretty quickly.
    • Remove from the grill and arrange the chicken on a platter. Top with the pineapple jalapeno salsa. As an optional garnish, try adding some crushed peanuts and sliced scallions.
    • Serve immediately and enjoy with a few lime wedges!
