Herbed Lime Chicken

The first post after the weight loss proclamation... will it be good, or just -blech- healthy?

I'm sure you all are worried that I will post 90 days 81 days of different ways to plate a garden salad. Have No FEAR!! Taste of Home Everyday Light is here!

Trainer Meal Plan Approved. :D Friend and Family dinner table appreciated.

Herbed Lime Chicken
Serves 4

(I'm a terrible person and forgot to take a picture... here's the one from the interwebz...)

1 16-oz. bottle Fat-Free Italian Salad Dressing
1/2 c. Lime Juice
1 Lime, halved and sliced
3 Garlic Cloves
1 t. dried Thyme
4 boneless, skinless Chicken Breast halves (about 4 oz. each)

In a bowl, combine everything but chicken. Remove 1/2 c. for basting, cover and refrigerate. Pour remaining marinade into gallon ziplock bag and add the chicken. Seal the bag and turn over to coat. Refrigerate for 8 to 10 hours.

Drain and discard marinade. Grill Chicken on the BBQ for about 5 minutes. Turn over and baste with remaining marinade. Grill for another 5-7 minutes, or until cooked through.

Serve immediately with a delicious and healthy side like Confetti Rice - coming up next!
