Chilli-lime Marinade for Paleo Chicken

The marinade was easy to make before work and I left the chicken pieces taking on the flavour in the fridge.  As it happened, the traffic got me and the kids were home first.  They threaded the meat onto kebabs and boiled some basmati rice for their supper.  Mike and I ate the grilled chicken meat (although not much left) (!), folded into the dark purple cabbage leaves (the meat that is not us) (doh).  Long day ;) Helped along by good food and an early night.


For each pound of chicken

3 tablespoons of oil of choice
1 1/2 Tbsps of red wine vinegar
1 lime juiced
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp paprika, onion and garlic powder
Cayenne pepper to taste
Salt and cracked fresh black pepper


Whisk ingredients together

Pour mixture over meat and leave to flavour up for as long as you wish (breakfast through til tea for me)

Thread onto skewers and grill

Would also work to slow cooker the chicken and shred the meat after 6 hours to serve as tacos wrapped in salad leaves with avocado and tomato or try some salsa
