Favorite Grilled Chicken with Citrus, Cilantro Marinade

This is my favorite marinade for grilled chicken. I almost always have these ingredients on hand and it’s delicious and so easy to prepare ahead of time.

I usually incorporate some kind of marinated chicken into my meal prep because it’s incredibly versatile. I can top salads, quinoa bowls and tacos with this chicken. This is also a terrific place to start if you’ve never made your own marinades before because I know that it can be intimidating. However, it’s so important for me to know what’s going into my food and jarred marinades often have hidden sugars, salt and preservatives. You don’t need to compromise quality ingredients for flavor. For me, preparation is always key to stay on track with clean eating. Cheers friends, enjoy this healthy, fresh and delicious marinade all summer!

Marinade Ingredients:
½ C of cilantro
⅓ C fresh squeezed orange juice
Zest of ½ orange
6 T olive oil
Juice of one lime
4 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp salt
6 boneless chicken breasts

In a glass container, marinate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
Grill about 4 to 6 minutes on each side or when the thermometer reaches 165.
Let rest for 10 minutes then slice against the grain. Enjoy!
