Grilled Chili and Lime Chicken

Our daughter just spent a week in New York City, her first trip to the Big Apple.  Even though it was a business trip she felt like it was a vacation.  I loved the text messages I got showing photos of Central Park, NYC Library, Bryant Park, Mood (we watch Project Runway), her cab, Lord & Taylor and where she was eating, yes I raised a foodie.  It is so refreshing to hear how much she loves her job and that she got to experience this adventure.

Schools are getting out, people are planning vacations, grills are being fired up.  I love this time of the year.  What better way to kick it throw some chicken breasts on the grill.

Grilled Chili and Lime Chicken

3 chicken breasts, sliced in half
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
fresh lime

Cut chicken breasts in half making 6  breasts.  Cover with extra virgin olive oil.  Mix together chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper, sprinkle on both sides of chicken and place on grill.  Cook 4 minutes on each side or until done.  Before serving squeeze lime juice on top of chicken.

Note:  These chicken breasts are also great on a salad, tacos, chicken sandwich, pasta with a cream sauce, it is very versatile.
