The sun is said to show it’s pretty little face quite a bit this week. Fingers crossed, you’ll be throwing another shrimp on the barby in no time. But we suggest you try chicken. With some lime juice and a dash of Tobasco. This light and fresh recipe offers your barbecue a perfect introduction to summer weather—not to mention some pizazz for those winter-laden tastebuds.
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon Tobasco sauce
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or less)
4 cups shredded lettuce
Combine soy sauce, lime peel, lime juice and Tobasco sauce in jar. Pour 2 tablespoons over chicken in a sealed plastic bag and marinate in fridge for 45 minutes. Turn bag occasionally. Add oil to remainder of lime mixture. Grill chicken for 7 to 10 minutes on each side. Line plates or serving tray with lettuce. Slice cooked chicken and arrange on lettuce. Shake dressing and drizzle over chicken and lettuce. Makes 4 servings.
