Ingredients:

8 Boneless skinless chicken breasts about 2 lbs.

2/3 bunch fresh cilantro

zest of 1 lime

3 Tbsp lime juice about 2 limes

3 cloves garlic chopped

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

Add chicken breast to a large freezer-safe sealable bag, followed by the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal it tightly. Now gently press to the marinade around the chicken cutlets to coat well.

Allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to overnight. Marinating overnight will enhance the juiciness and flavor of the chicken.

Next, brush the grill or a heavy-bottomed pan with some oil and heat over medium-high heat. Place the marinated chicken breast onto the hot grill.

Grill without moving them around, about 5 minutes on each side, or until charred and cooked through.
