"I serve this flavorful jalapeno and citrus-infused chicken with yellow rice. When seeding the jalapenos, leave in as many seeds as you want - the more seeds, the hotter it will be."

Directions

  1. Whisk together the orange juice, lime juice, cumin, garlic, and jalapeno pepper in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken breasts, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Place the chicken on a broiling pan.
  3. Broil the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Was not impressed with recipe, marinated chicken for 6 hours and it was missing something. A good base to add to. Thanks for the recipe.

I like this recipe, 2nd time I have used it. This time I added the fresh lime zest from the limes before I juiced them. This is delicious on the grill. Very healthy meal!

I only made slight changes to the recipe, using more minced garlic and pickled jalapenos instead of fresh, and fresh squeezed orange and lime juices. I marinated the chicken for ~8 hours. I us...

Wow! This was beyond great. I marinated the chicken overnight and used thighs as I find they are juicier. It had the right amount of heat. I also made a sauce from the leftover marinade and adde...

This chicken is good. You have to make sure the chicken is browned on both sides or you are going to have the bland flavor. Also, I added adobo and garlic powder to it. These ingredients enhance...

I marinated my chicken for two days due to something coming up and I have to say it was very flavorful. My only issue was the chicken was so dry. I have never really used my broiler before so wa...

This is great as fajitas. Grill the chicken, with peppers and onions, serve with guacamole, sour cream and cheese. Great dish, served on tortillas.

I liked this, but it didn't have as much jalapeno flavor as I would have liked. I was only able to marinate for 2.5 hours, as I got home from work late (lousy Chicago traffic!) I'll make this ag...
