1/2 teaspoon lime zest
1/4 cup lime juice

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

Preheat grill. Grill chicken breasts for 10 minutes.

REVIEW: recipe rating
We used this marinade/glaze for our chicken dinner accompanied by a quinoa and black beans dish. It was the perfect compliment. We chose to pair the dinner with a 2006 Ridge Zinfandel. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
