Can you believe that this weekend is July 4th? This summer has just flown by for us. It always seems like school is barreling our way once the 4th is over.

We wish you a wonderful and safe Independence Day!
Now for todays recipe. I love summertime dinners. The majority of the time we throw something on the grill, add a salad and dinner is done. The kitchen stays cool and relatively clean. This chicken is fantastic on its own or you can cut it into strips and roll it up in tortillas for a delicious fajita.
- ¾ cup olive oil
- ½ cup lime juice
- ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 2 teaspoons oregano
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
- Whisk together all the marinade ingredients until well combines in a small bowl and set aside.
