Servings 6 -8 servings
- 6-8 chicken breasts boneless skinless -trimmed of any fat
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime zest
- 6 cloves garlic minced

Place chicken breasts in a 1-gallon ziplock bag.
In a small bowl, whisk together all the marinade ingredients. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade and store in the refrigerator. Pour the rest of the marinade over chicken and seal the bag. Place the bag on a rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate 24 hours.
