8 servings, about 1.5 ounces each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes (including 1 hour marinating time)   

Ingredients 

· 1/4 cup lime juice, (about 2 limes) 

· 2 tablespoons canola oil 

· 1 tablespoon white vinegar 

· 1 teaspoon ground cumin 

· 1/4 teaspoon salt 

· 1 jalapeno, sliced 

· 1-1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat, tenders removed 

Preparation 

Whisk lime juice, oil, vinegar, cumin and salt in a small bowl. Stir in jalapeno. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over it, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, turning once, or overnight.
Preheat grill to high heat. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the chicken until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let cool slightly; thinly slice crosswise. Serve warm or chilled.
