Chipotle-Lime Marinade for Chicken (C1)

Recipe Author: Simmie Sinow

This recipe is good to marinade 2-3 chicken breasts.

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lime juice
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp lime zest
2 Tbsp agave nectar
2 Tbsp ground cumin
2 Tbsp chipotle powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Combine all the ingredients and use as a marinade for your chicken breasts.  Place the marinade and chicken breasts in a large ziploc bag and marinate for 2-4 hours, turning the chicken every 30 minutes or so to thoroughly coat the chicken.

Bake or grill your chicken as you normally would.  With baked chicken, it is recommended 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.

NOTE:
It is recommended that you poke holes in the chicken breasts (with a fork or knife) before putting them in with the marinade, so that the flavors permeate the inside of the breasts.
