Lime-Broiled Chicken Breasts





















Lime-Broiled Chicken Breasts

4 whole chicken breasts, halved
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
4 tbsp Italian salad dressing mix
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Place chicken breasts, skin side up, in large baking dish. Combine oil, salad dressing mix and lime juice in a small bowl. Pour evenly over chicken. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Put baking dish under broiler 3 inches from heat and broil, basting with marinade and turning several times, for 30 minutes, or until chicken is fork tender and glazed.

I substituted 1/4 cup of Italian salad dressing for the oil and dressing mix and I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I was nervous about the whole 3 inches from the broiler instruction so I lowered the rack a little more. When I put the potato casserole in the oven during the last 10 minutes, I had to turn the heat down to 350 F. It didn't seem to be a problem.

Hal gave the chicken 2 thumbs up. I found it very light and refreshing thanks to the citrus.
