Store-bought marinades can contain hidden gluten, but Elana Amsterdam, who writes the blog Elana's Pantry, shows us that making your own is easy.

Serves 2


  • 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper


Combine lime juice, cilantro, mustard, olive oil, chili, salt and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until ingredients are well combined.

Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry and place in an 7-inch x 11-inch Pyrex baking dish. Pour marinade over chicken, cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 6 hours.

Heat grill and cook chicken for 5-7 minutes per side until browned and cooked in the center.
