What’s cookin’ south of the border?

So, a few months ago I was at this business expo for work (also promoting this organization I’m in called Tech Marketing Association). My boss and I were just walking around meeting new people, and enjoying the sights and sounds. That is until we hit the food area. It smelled sooooo good! Pizza, pasta, baked goods, and others. I knew that something smelled good when I walked in, but I like to say I have a crazy sense of imagination. Anyway, we ran into this booth called “Go Texan”. Basically promoting buying local (oops…sorry…walmart is my friend right now) and how it effects us. At the booth there were recipe cards of all sorts, so I grabbed a few. Again, me being me, I forgot where I put the cards until now. So, I am proud to present: South of the Border Chicken Breasts by Go Texan.

Ingredients:
1/4 C vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Method:
1. Heat broiler
2. Spray broiler pan with nonstick spray
3. In a small bowl, blend oil, garlic, chili powder, oregano, and cayenne
4. Place chicken on pan and spoon/brush half of the seasoning mixture over the chicken
5. Broil chicken for 6 minutes 4-6 inches from heat
6. Turn chicken and brush/spoon remaining mixture onto the chicken
7. Broil for 4-6 minutes more, or until internal juices run clear

Notes:
I really liked this. It was spicy and savory. Definitely something to make for a mass amount of people. The recipe is so easy, and you can definitely put some twists here and there. I think adding lime juice or a lime when serving would be a great addition. It says to serve with hot black beans and corn (so I did…I’ll show you later what I did). Anyway, cook it up and happy Nom Noms 😀
