Citrus Marinated Chicken

I found this recipe in the latest issue of Gourmet. Yeah, it's an advertisement, but the pic...ooh, the pic made my mouth water! I can't wait until I have some spare time on a weekend to make it...

Citrus Marinated Chicken

Citrus peel and juices flavor a marinade for chicken. Short on time? A 15-minute marination will still give zesty flavor to the chicken breasts. For maximum flavor, marinate up to 4 hours.

Serves 8

1 package McCormick’s Grill Mates Baja Citrus Marinade
1/3 cup orange juice
¼ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lime or orange peel
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon McCormick Cilantro Leaves
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Mix marinade mix, orange juice, oil, lime peel, lime juice and cilantro in small bowl. Place chicken in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add marinade; turn and coat. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes or longer for extra flavor. Remove chicken from marinade. Discard marinade. Broil or grill chicken over medium-high heat about 6 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked through, turning frequently.
