1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breast halves
Nonfat cooking spray
1 Prepare grill. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine oil, lime peel, lime juice, jalapeño pepper, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper.
