Zero Points Garlic Lime Chicken

Serves Two

2 boneless chicken breasts

1 TBSP garlic, minced

1 medium scallion, chopped

3 TBSP cilantro leaves

1/2 cup low-sodium fat-free chicken broth

1 TBSP fresh lime juice

2 tsp lime zest

1 tsp ground cumin

4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

2 TBSP low-sodium soy sauce

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

lime wedge, for garnish

Olive-oil cooking spray

Wash the chicken and pat it dry before placing it into a shallow marinating dish.  Mince the garlic.  Chop the scallion.  Remove two TBSP of cilantro leaves.  The remaining TBSP of cilantro will be for garnish.  Place garlic, scallion and cilantro into a mixing bowl.  Pour the chicken broth into the bowl.  Add the lime juice,  lime zest, cumin, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, salt and pepper.  Whisk all the ingredients well and pour over the chicken.  Cover and place in the fridge to marinate at least 4 hours or overnight.

Spray a grill pan with olive oil cooking spray and heat pan to medium.  Remove chicken breasts from marinade and move to the grill pan.  Cook each chicken breast for 5-6 minutes until it develops dark grill marks, then flip each breast and cook on the other side for 5-6 minutes more until cooked through and no longer pink.

Garnish each chicken breast with cilantro leaves and a lime wedge.  Serve with Zero Points Asian Cauliflower Rice for a complete meal.  Enjoy!
