Peruvian Chicken

August 11, 2008

I typically think marinades do nothing for really flavoring the taste of meat, other than a little coating on the outside that usually gets cooked off. This marinade from Gourmet really changed my mind. It made the meat really tender and gave the chicken a nice flavor coating on the outside. I’ve actually made this one twice! I serve this with yellow rice and sauteed vegetables to make a meal.


1/3 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

5 garlic cloves

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 t black pepper

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, or other cuts of chicken to serve 4

Blend soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, cumin, paprika, oregano, pepper, and oil in a blender. Add chicken, flip to coat and let marinate overnight. Grill or bake chicken as desired.
