I tried this chicken about a year ago for dinner group and it was the first time EVER where everyone in dinner group asked me for the recipe. On the surface, the recipe seems really basic and simple. But somehow, the combination of the taco seasonings with the red wine vinegar and lime juice makes wonderful things happen. The chicken is literally bursting with flavor and juiciness. I cannot emphasize enough how much you must try this most basic chicken recipe. It is easy and it is awesome.
1. Juice the limes and combine with a couple splashes of red wine vinegar. Add garlic. Pour over chicken. This will not completely cover the chicken; just turn it occasionally as needed. Marinate for at least 4 hours, no longer than 8.
2. Fire up your grill, broiler, Foreman grill, etc. Combine the salt, chili powder, cumin, and black pepper in a small bowl. Liberally sprinkle the seasoning mixture all over your chicken. (I make this chicken recipe so often, I made an extra large batch of this seasoning blend and keep it in my pantry at all times.)
3. Grill the chicken until done, being sure to flip the chicken over during the grilling process. Allow the meat to rest for several minutes before cutting into it. Serve it in tacos, enchiladas, soup, fajitas, or with rice and beans, or anything else that lights your fancy.
As you may have noticed, our blog's URL doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. "Zum Fressen" is German for "to eat." We grew up with a German Mom who cooked dinner every night, from scratch. We all grew up with a love to cook, but an even greater love to eat! We originally started this blog as a place to post all our family favorite recipes... the ones we would call eachother for every other week. We wanted them all in one place. Since then, it's turned into a place to share our favorite new recipes, too. We sort through all the recipes we come across and post only those that worked well and that we LOVE. Hopefully, you'll find a new favorite, too. Thanks for stopping by!
