A+ Southwest Chicken, courtesy of Pediascribe

I made such a delicious dinner last night, and it was SO HEALTHY! This recipe came from Karen over at and really was excellent. Even the kids liked it, and they're always so IFFY about things. Just a note to Karen - I did do things slightly different, i.e. the ziplock thing & making the paste but still - YUM :)

Anyways, here's how it goes:

A+ Southwest Grilled Chicken


4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp each cumin, oregano & chili powder
3 cloves garlic, crushed
salt & pepper to taste

Mix the spices in a bowl together with the oil. In a ziplock-type bag, place chicken breasts and spice mixture. Mush together so that each breast is coated. I let mine sit for about 10 minutes while the grill heated up.

Grill the chicken approximately 10 minutes on one side, flip and another 5 on the other.

If you have leftovers, (which you probably won't!), throw it in a salad the next day - YUM!
