Grilled Chicken Seasoning
Looking for a great grilled chicken seasoning to use this summer? Try this marinade recipe I used for this chicken burrito bowl.
What you will need for the chicken marinade:
- Olive oil
- Fresh lime juice
- Ground cumin
- Chili powder
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Dried oregano
- Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
Place all the above ingredients in a bag or container. Add the chicken and then leave to marinade for 30-90 minutes. This chicken seasoning recipe will still taste great even if you don’ have any time to marinade.
How do I grill the perfect chicken breast
Allow the chicken breast to cook on the grill for about 5-7 minutes on each side before you flip. Leave the chicken to cook on medium heat so it doesn’t cook too fast and dry out. Essentially, an overcooked chicken will be too try and rubbery. If you prefer using a thermometer, wait until the chicken is tested with a thermometer at 165 Degrees.
Are Burritos healthy for you?
I often time ask this question? What’s in your burrito bowl? Burritos are made with some sort of rice, beans, meat, corn, salad, avocados and then wrapped in a tortilla. Burrito bowls will be a healthier option and chicken burrito bowls are an even better option because the grilled chicken would be much leaner than beef. Add cleaner and healthier options to your burrito bowl and your burrito bowl should be healthy enough to enjoy without too much guilt.
