Serves: 4


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (5 oz. each)
  • 2 tsp. minced shallots
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. finely sliced jalapeño peppers
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1⁄2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp. salt


  • Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to flatten slightly. Combine all other ingredients in a glass dish and place the chicken breasts in it, turning to coat thoroughly. Marinate 2 hours in refrigerator, covered.
  • When ready to cook, spray a heavy skillet or stovetop grill pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat dry; discard the marinade. Cook the chicken breasts for a total of 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, or until juices run clear.
