Why I Love This Recipe

I love the name of this marinade and I found this recipe on Plain Chicken! Stephanie has some great recipes and I love her blog!

This marinade is very versatile and can be used on chicken, shrimp, fish and pork! With each bite of the chicken I got a hint of the juices and the orange juice stuck out to me! I got a hint of the salsa too, which was nice and juicy and I love, love, love salsa! All around, this is one great tasting chicken! I think next time, I'm going to let it marinate a few hours longer! Due to time, I only let the chicken marinate 2 hours! After I butterfly cut my chicken, I pierced each piece all over with my knife so the marinade would soak into every nook and cranny! Delicious!


Ingredients You'll Need

Your choice of meat
3 chicken breast, I butterfly cut mine to make 6 thin breast, pierced each piece all over with my knife

Marinade
1/3 cup lime juice
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup orange juice
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 bay leaf, optional
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup salsa
2 tablespoons olive oil


Directions

Combine all the ingredients (except chicken) in a blender and blend well. I just blended mine well, in the Ziploc bag and it worked fine.


Place chicken (pork or shrimp) in a large Ziploc bag and pour marinade over the meat.


Place the bag in the refrigerator, and marinate for 2 to 4 hours. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade.


Grill on medium high heat, 4-5 minutes per side and then turn occasionally cooking 12 more minutes or until temp reaches 165 degrees.
