Chicken stays juicier and more flavorful when it cooks on the bone. You can cut up the leftover chicken and toss it with mixed greens and chopped vegetables for a healthful lunch salad
Ingredients
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ⅓ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 12 (8-ounce) skinless, bone-in chicken breast halves
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Combine first 7 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Place 6 chicken breast halves and half of herb mixture in a large zip-top plastic bag. Place remaining breast halves and remaining herb mixture in a second large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning bags occasionally.
  2. Prepare grill.
  3. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Let chicken stand 15 minutes. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt, cumin, and pepper. Place chicken, breast side down, on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 12 minutes on each side or until a thermometer registers 165°, turning once.
