We may not live anywhere near the border, but we favor Mexican food! Served with warm tortillas and chili beans, this is a much-requested dish whenever we fire up the grill.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon salt

In a small bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients. Set aside half of marinade for basting; cover and refrigerate. Pour remaining marinade in a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium-low heat, for 20-40 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°-175°, turning and basting frequently with reserved marinade. Yield: 4-6 servings.
Editor's Note: Watch closely; chicken may burn easily.
