Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts skinless about 180g each
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lime freshly squeezed
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • A few twists of freshly grated pepper
  • Lime wedges to serve

Instructions

  • Combine olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • Add the chicken to the marinade, toss to coat and marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • Place a baking tray on the centre shelf of your oven and Preheat oven to 220C Fan.
  • Cut two pieces of aluminium foil large enough to fold over and wrap around each chicken breast. Lightly grease one side of each piece of foil with some olive oil or cooking spray.
  • When the chicken is ready to be cooked wrap the foil around the marinated chicken making parcels.
  • Place the chicken parcels on the pre-heated oven tray and cook on the centre shelf for approximately 25 - 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Serve with couscous, broccoli and lime wedges.
