Roberto’s Grilled Thai-Style Chicken Breasts with Mojito Lime & Lemongrass Crust

(Makes 12 servings)

McCormick Grill Mates Mojito Lime Marinade – 2 (1.06oz) packages
Vegetable Oil – ¼ cup
Apple Cider Vinegar – 4 Tablespoons
Water – 4 Tablespoons
Coconut Milk – 13oz can, good quality
Lemongrass – 2 ounces Gourmet Garden chopped tube, plus 2 fresh stalks, chopped
Sazón Goya – 3 packets, with cilantro y achiote
Cilantro – handful fresh, chopped
Basil – about 12 fresh large leaves, sliced
Chicken Breasts – 12 large, skinless, boneless

  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except chicken) and whisk well until well combine; set aside.
  • Rinse chicken breast under cold water and let drain. Arrange the chicken breast in a nonreactive baking dish or other vessel large enough to accommodate them in a snug single layer. Pour the marinade over the chicken breasts and turn to coat them well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • The day after, remove baking dish with marinated chicken from refrigerator, uncover, and let them come to room temperature, at least two hours prior to grill them.
  • Heat a gas grill to medium-high. Grill the marinated chicken breast, covered, until it has good grill marks on the first side, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the chicken, brush some of the remaining marinade, cover again, and continue to cook until firm to the touch and completely cooked through (check by making a slice into one of the thickest chicken breast), another 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Meanwhile while chicken breasts are grilling, transfer remaining marinade from baking dish to a small saucepan. Add about 1 Tablespoon of chopped lemongrass (from the tube) and ½ cup chicken stock, and cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Set aside.
  • Transfer grilled chicken breast to a large container; add reserved marinade and cover, letting them rest for 5 minutes. At this time, you can thick-slice the grilled chicken breast. I prefer it this way for it makes the chicken breasts more flavorful by absorbing most of the reserved marinade.
  • Enjoy!
