Chili Lime Rub

Olive Oil

2 tbsps.

Chili Powder

1 tsp.

Chipotle Chili Powder

Ground Cumin

½ tsp.

Smoked Paprika

Directions

1.     In a small bowl, whisk chicken rub ingredients together and rub evenly all over chicken breasts. Timer permitting, allow chicken to sit for 30 minutes at room temperature or refrigerate up to 8 hours then bring to room temperature for before cooking.*

Stove-top Directions

2.     If chicken has been refrigerated, let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (time permitting).

3.     Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once very hot, add chicken and cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes, or until nicely browned (or blackened if you prefer) on one side. Turn chicken over, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 5-7 more minutes (depending on thickness of chicken), or until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

4.     Garnish with extra fresh lime juice if desired.

Grilling Directions

5.     If chicken has been refrigerated, let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (time permitting).

6.     Meanwhile, grease and preheat the grill to medium heat, 375-450°F.

7.     Grill chicken undisturbed for 6-7 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through. (An inserted thermometer should read 155 degrees F.)

8.     Remove chicken from grill and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
