This is a super easy chicken recipe that tastes fantastic.  Simply mix the marinade, grill, and enjoy!

Prep time: 20 minutes, Grill: 15 minutes

What you need:
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons green chilies – chopped
1 teaspoon fresh garlic – minced
4 chicken breasts halves – skinned
8 slices cheddar cheese
salsa

What you need to do:
First, in a 9” square baking pan stir together all first 4 ingredients this will make the marinade. Next add the chicken breasts to marinade and place in the refrigerator; turn chicken breasts only once while marinating. Prepare the charcoal grill by placing coals to one side; heat until the coals turn ash white.  When coals turn ash white spread evenly.  Remove chicken breasts from marinade and pat dry on paper towels.  Grill chicken for 7 minutes on each side or until fork tender. Top each chicken breast with 2 slices of cheese.  Continue to grill until cheese begins to melt.  Serve chicken with salsa.
