Grilled Salsa Verde Chicken

Serves: 4

Takes: 1 hour (20 minutes prep and 40 minutes cooking)


1 jar Salsa Verde (Woolworths or Food Lovers Market)
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1/2 a lime/or lemon
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 slices white cheese like mozarella
1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro
Lime wedges, for serving


In a large bowl, whisk together ½ cup salsa verde, olive oil, lime juice, garlic, chili powder and cumin. (Reserve about ½ cup salsa verde for basting chicken and ½ cup for serving.)

Add chicken and toss until fully coated in mixture. Let marinate for 20 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium-high, then add chicken and cook for 6 minutes. Flip chicken, brushing each breast with more salsa verde, and cook for another 6 minutes.

Top each piece of chicken with a slice of cheese, jalapeño and red onion, then cover grill and cook until the cheese has melted and the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes more.
