Garlic Chicken on a Grill

Chicken breasts are grilled with a marinade of lemon or lime juice, garlic, and chili powder,
1.   4 boneless chicken breast halves
2.  1 cup purchased salsa or picante sauce
3.  2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4.  1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
5.  2 cloves garlic, finely minced( you can use Ready Ginger Garlic Paste)
6.  1/4 teaspoon salt
7.  1/4 teaspoon chili powder ( add some more to spice it up)
·        Flatten chicken breasts; place each chicken breast between sheets or plastic wrap or food storage bags and pound gently with flat side of meat mallet until about 1/4-inch thick.
·        Cut each flattened chicken breast into strips about 1-inch in width. Place chicken strips in a glass baking dish or nonreactive shallow container.
Combine remaining ingredients; pour over chicken. Cover and chill chicken in marinade for 1 to 2 hours.
Thread chicken onto metal skewers or well-soaked wooden skewers. Grill over hot coals for 6 to 8 minutes, turning a few times and basting with remaining marinade. Serve with additional salsa, if desired.
Serves 4.
