Mexican Grilled Chicken

As Summer is coming to an end, it is actually more enjoyable to grill out here in Texas. Lucky for us, we can pretty much grill out year-round. I love to make my own marinades or anything we grill, and this is one of my favorites. It's so simple and easy to throw together, and tastes incredible on chicken. I also have done steak this same way for fajitas, and it's out of this world. I bet you have almost everything for it already on hand, so next time you want to switch it up - give this a try!

4-6 Pieces Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, rinsed and trimmed of excess fat
1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Teaspoons White Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Cilantro, chopped
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1/2 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Mix everything except for the chicken in a medium size bowl until evenly combined. Add the chicken and move it around in the marinade until evenly coated. Let marinate for 4-6 hours and then grill until the chicken is cooked through and the juices are no longer running pink.
