MEXICAN CHICKEN MARINADE

Ingredients:

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

2 tablespoons lime juice (juice of 1 lime)

1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 3 cloves)

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder

3-4 pounds chicken breasts, thighs, or any cut you prefer

Directions:

In a large resealable plastic bag (or a large mixing bowl), add all the ingredients and toss to combine.
Add the chicken (I used 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts) and toss with marinade to coat.
Seal bag or cover and marinate in the fridge for 2 to 8 hours.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill or cook until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
Enjoy !!
