The perfect summer meal. Not only is it quick and easy , but it's also light. The chicken comes out bursting with flavor. Goes great by itself or can be served as a taco filling with fresh Pico de Gallo. Add a cold refreshing margarita and you will be in paradise!
Ground black pepper
Whole chicken, cut into 6 pieces
Whisk lime juice, cilantro, garlic salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl. Add the chicken; toss to evenly coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 mins or overnight.
Preheat outdoor grill to a medium high heat and lightly oil the grate.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade.
Cook on preheated grill, turning occasionally, until no longer pink at the bone and juices run clear, about 30 minutes. Thermometer should read 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius)
