Lime Marinated Chicken

My husband barbecued some chicken for me to take for my lunch tomorrow. We had some leftover Mexican rice (taco seasoning mixed with wild rice), so a Mexican inspired accompaniment was in order.

Start off by making diagonal slits up the chicken and then fill the openings with chopped garlic and a lot of lime juice. Sprinkle heavily with chili powder and allow to marinate for a few hours before cooking. As soon as you pull it off the barbecue, splash with a little more lime juice.

So juicy, and a wonderful change to regular, everyday chicken.
