Good Thyme Gal Grilled Mexican Lime Chicken Recipe

This month's recipes have been dedicated to some great Mexican dishes I am sure you will want to reuse over and over again. Taco Tuesday night can seem redundant. It is always nice to have different Mexican food recipes handy. I also like this because it is a marinade.

Marinades are a wonderful way to spice up your meat without having to inconvenience yourself. Just combine your desired spices with some oil along with your meat and let it sit for a few hours. Marinades can complement your food and bring your dish to life. This is a marinade I use for chicken when I am in the mood for a taste of Mexican without the calories. You can use any chicken pieces you prefer. :

Eat it with you hands !-GTG

Mexican Food is always a wonderful food alternative during the warmer months. Why? Most people enjoy being able to eat with their hands. There are also the delicious, yet refreshing tastes of Limon, chilis, and well-seasoned meat. Mexican food can liven up any event and make anyone feel welcome. The prep time is always a breeze. This chicken recipe takes less than 10 minutes to prep and depending on how you cook your chicken it will be done in under 45 minutes.

I challenge you to make your very own marinade. Using your favorite spices. See what you can come up with. Remember cooking should be, passionate, messy, and fun. So don't be afraid or shy to get in there and get your hands dirty. I love to get my family involved in any new cooking projects.

Family inclusion when cooking can help strengthen your cooking skills as well as give you confidence inside the kitchen. It is also a great way for you to show off your cooking skills and impress your family. So many wonderful things happen in the kitchen. let me know how Grilled Mexican Lime Chicken Recipe turns out!
