Recipe for Garlic and Mint Chicken Breasts. A delicious light chicken recipe, just marinate and grill.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • fresh mint sprigs

Directions

  1. 1. For marinade, in a blender combine mint leaves, lemon juice, oil, soy sauce, chili powder, pepper, and garlic. Cover and blend until smooth.
  2. 2. Place chicken in a self-sealing plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  3. 3. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. For a charcoal grill, place chicken on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink (170°F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chicken on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) If desired, garnish with mint sprigs.
