Ingredients

Marinade

2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped green chiles
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic

Chicken

4 split chicken breasts, skinned*
4 (3/4-ounce ) slices LAND O LAKES® Deli Cheddar Cheese, cut in half diagonally

Topping

Salsa

Directions

Heat gas grill to medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

Combine all marinade ingredients in large resealable plastic food bag; add chicken breasts. Tightly seal bag; turn bag several times to coat chicken well. Place bag into 13x9-inch pan. Refrigerate at least 45 minutes, turning once.

Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.

Place chicken onto grill. Grill, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink (45 to 50 minutes). Top each chicken breast with 2 pieces cheese. Continue grilling until cheese begins to melt (1 to 2 minutes). Serve with salsa.

TIP: Substitute 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts. Grill, turning once, for 20 to 25 minutes.
