Grilled Chicken Breasts

1 1/3 cups olive or vegetable
2/3 cup  lime juice
4 tablespoons fresh jalapenos or other hot chilies; chopped
2 tsp. fresh minced garlic
8 chicken breasts halves;

 In a glass dish or plastic container stir together all
marinade ingredients.  Add the chicken breasts;
marinate, turning once, in refrigerator at least 45
minutes. Remove chicken from marinade; drain.
Grill chicken about 5-7 minutes on each side until
no longer pink, and done throughout.  Do not baste
with marinade unless you boil it first...then it's okay,
or baste with a 1-1 mix of vinegar and water with
salt, pepper and garlic powder added.  I used a
sports bottle to squirt instead of brush. This chicken
is great leftover on salad!
