PREVIOUS: Salt and Pepper Kale Chips NEXT: Sunkist Pepper Chicken

Ingredients (4)

  • 1 small chicken breast (2-4 ounces)
  • Lime juice (2-4 tsp.; alter to taste)
  • 2-4 shakes pepper
  • Lemon juice (optional)

Pretty easy to do. Still, creates a distinct taste that is better than the instant microwave chicken.


  1. Heat chicken on a grill. Make sure all sides are thoroughly cooked. Edges should be slightly browned, interior white.
  2. Cut small slit in top of chicken. Sprinkle in the lime juice. If desired, spritz a little more over the surface of the chicken. If you wish to add a little bit of lemon juice, maybe 1/2 tsp., you may do so here.

You do not need to flip over the chicken after this. Keep the juice side up.

  1. Scatter the pepper over top of chicken.
  2. Continue to heat about 2 more minutes. Shut off heat.

Let stand 1-2 minutes before serving. And you’re ready!
