Cilantro Grilled Chicken
4 bone-in, chicken breasts
1/2 bunch of cilantro (leaves and stems)
zest and juice of 1 lime or lemon
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp of salt and pepper
1/2 cup of olive oil or vegetable oil
Step 1: Either with a food processor, or using a mortar and pestle, chopped/bash the washed cilantro leaves and stems. Add the garlic cloves and mash too.
Step 2: Add the zest and juice of the lime or lemon, along with the salt and pepper. When the mixture resembles a paste, add the olive oil and mix.
Step 3: Transfer the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag, along with the chicken breasts. Place on a plate and into the fridge for at least 4 hours.
Step 4: Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill on the BBQ. Grill bone side down for majority of the cooking time, finishing off on meat side down.
Step 5: When finished cooking, squeeze some more lime juice on top of the chicken and let rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing.
