Ingredients:

Marinade:

2 T. extra virgin olive oil
½ c. apple cider vinegar
2 T. lime juice
2 t. organic lime zest
2 T. fresh oregano, rinsed and crushed with fingers to release oils
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, rinsed and crushed with fingers to release oils
3 garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
salt and pepper, to taste

4 8-oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions:

Add the marinade ingredients to a large glass bowl and whisk to combine. Add chicken breasts to a large seal-able freezer bag and pour marinade mixture over top. Seal back and turn to coat breasts thoroughly.

Place the bag in a bowl and set in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours. Turn the bag a couple times to evenly distribute the marinade.

Remove chicken from the refrigerator and discard marinade. Grill breasts over medium direct heat, turning once, for 10 – 12 minutes total. Remove from heat and let set for 5 minutes before serving.
