Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and add split chicken breast.


Cover and place in refrigerator for 30-45 min (No Longer than 1 hour, as the acid in lime juice can overcook the chicken).


Take chicken out, pat dry, and place over medium-hot GrillGrates flipping every 2-3 min.


When Chicken reaches an internal temp of 160°F- 162ºF, remove from grill and let it rest on a plate or cutting board for 5-8 min.


Slice and enjoy!
