How to Make Smoky Grilled Chicken Breast

by Alisa Cox


  • 2 Pounds Boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 Garlic clove-diced
  • 2 Limes
  • 3 Tablespoons Grape seed oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Apple cider or coconut vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons Smoked paprika
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground curry
  • ½ Teaspoons Ground mustard
  • ½ Teaspoons Chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    First, dice 1 clove of garlic and add to a small bowl.

    Step 2

    Next add all the spices to the bowl with the garlic. Remember that you can adjust the spices to your preference.

    Step 3

    Mix them all together.

    Step 4

    In a separate dish large enough to hold the chicken, add the grape seed oil, vinegar and fresh squeezed lime juice from 2 limes and mix together.

    Step 5

    Add the chicken and coat on both sides. You can marinate the chicken in the vinegar, lime, oil mixture for 4 hours to achieve a stronger flavor if you prefer. It is not required to marinate.

    Step 6

    Move chicken to a new plate and pour 1/2 the Spice mixture over the chicken and rub in. Flip the chicken over and pour the remaining mixture on to the chicken and rub in again. Wash hands after :)

    Step 7

    Place on the grill on medium-medium high heat. Cook for 20-25 minutes. Remember that the chicken will release from the grill when it's ready to be turned. Only flip it once.

    Step 8

    Remove chicken off the grill and cover with foil for 5-10 minutes. Do not skip this step! It makes your chicken extra juicy because it gives it time to rest. Remove foil and enjoy!
