Tangy Lime Grilled Chicken

Seasoned with a zestful blend of lime, chili powder, smoked paprika, and other spices, the chicken marinates for at few hours in a tangy and smoky mixture that includes olive oil, lime juice and zest, chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic and onion powder, and optional cayenne for an extra kick. Then it is grilled to perfection, achieving a juicy interior and a beautifully spiced exterior. Serve with grilled ears of corn or elotes as accompaniment. The dish provides a balanced combination of flavors, and it’s perfect for summer barbecues or a satisfying weeknight meal. This chicken is also perfect for use in this salad recipe: Chili Lime Quinoa Salad
