Since our daughter is away at college and it’s just the two of us, I came up with this recipe on the spur of the moment. I like using the chicken breast tenderloins, because they thaw and cook quickly. This recipe was easily be multiplied.
- 6 Trader Joe’s Individually Frozen Chicken Breast Tenderloins, thawed.
- 1 tablespoon organic extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- Sea salt
- Freshly ground pepper
Thaw the chicken breast tenderloins. Blot the chicken with a paper towel. Mix olive oil, lime juice, cilantro and garlic together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Brush the chicken with the marinade.
On a nonstick grilling pan, spread the olive oil with a paper towel. On medium heat, grill the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until cooked. Add more salt and pepper, if needed. Serves 2.
