Grilled Citrus Chicken with Fresh Salsa
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup low-fat or non-fat plain yogurt
1/4 cup minced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 4 to 6 oz. each
For the salsa:
4 tomatoes, chopped
1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
8 warm flour tortillas
1. For the chicken: Mix all the ingredients except the chicken in a large bowl. Add the chicken to the mixture and coat evenly. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
2. Preheat the grill or broiler.
3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade. (This protects against cross-contamination.) Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.
4. Place the chicken on the grill or under the broiler and cook until the juices run clear, 6 to 8 minutes per side.
