A fast, easy grilled chicken that's great for leftovers too A fast, easy grilled chicken that's great for leftovers too
Number of Servings: 8


    4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    2 Tbs olive oil
    1 tsp each cumin, oregano & chili powder
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    salt & pepper to taste


Mix the spices in a bowl together with the oil. In a ziplock-type bag, place chicken breasts and spice mixture. Mush together so that each breast is coated. I let mine sit for about 10 minutes while the grill heated up.

Grill the chicken approximately 10 minutes on one side, flip and another 5 on the other.

If you have leftovers, (which you probably won't!), throw it in a salad the next day - YUM!

    The olive oil is not accounted for in the nutritional information and would add an additional 30 calories and 3.5g of fat per serving. - 4/2/11

    Very Good
    Great on the grill. Used a mix of chemayo, pasilla and jalapeno chile powders. - 7/10/11
