Grilled Lime Chicken with Black Bean Sauce


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup Orange Juice
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • sprig of fresh cilantro


Combine lime juice, vegetable oil, red pepper, and garlic in a large zip-top heavy-duty plastic bag. Add chicken; seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan; add bell pepper and onion. Cook 30 seconds; drain. Plunge into ice water; drain well. Set aside.

In a food processor, add beans, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and garlic. Process until smooth. Pour into a saucepan; cook over medium-low heat until heated.

Remove chicken from bag and grill over medium-hot coals. Cook 8-10 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. To serve, divide bean mixture onto each of 4 plates. Place chicken breast on top of sauce; top each with 2 tablespoons bell pepper mixture or a fresh tomato salsa. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

This recipe was excellent. I only marinated the chicken for 3 hours and it turned out flavorful. The beans really added to the dish. I served corn as a side.

Will make again.
