Santa Fe / Mexican style marinade

  • 4 tbsp neutral oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili powder, or regular chili powder
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS :

  • Mix to combine the ingredients for the marinade and soak the chicken in a bowl or sealable plastic bag.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 24 hours.
  • Cook the chicken on a grill or in a pan for about 5 – 8 minutes on each side. Do not overcook! Stop when the spongy, gummy feeling of raw meat is gone. If you press on it, you will know what I mean.
  • Let the meat rest for a few minutes before slicing. It gives it time to finish cooking and firming up.
