 Ingredients List

  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts or 6-8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 5 tablespoons oil
  • juice of 4 limes (about 5-6 tablespoons)
  • 2 green onions, roughly chopped
  • 4 habanero chiles (sems and seeds removed) roughly chopped
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic

Combine oil, lime juice, and next 9 ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until well blended. Reserve ¼ cup of the mixture in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate. Transfer remaining mixture into a large resealable bag. Add chicken, seal bag, and chill for 3-8 hours.
Grease and preheat grill. Remove chicken from bag, discard the bag and remaining marinade. Grill chicken 5-6 minutes on each side.
Brush reserved sauce over the chicken and grill 2-3 minutes longer on each side until cooked through (large chicken breasts may need some additional grilling time) Garnish with chopped cilantro if desired and serve immediately.
