Ingredients

This recipe serves:

2

Units of Measurement:
main
4 chicken breasts
2 Teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
1 lime, juiced
1 orange, juiced
4 Teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper

Steps

  • 1

    It’s great to get to know your local butcher to get the highest quality meats. Pound chicken breasts to 1/2” thickness.

  • 2

    Rub chicken breasts with olive oil. Combine citrus juices, cumin, salt, and pepper and rub mixture evenly onto chicken breasts and let marinade at least 1 hour (or overnight).

  • 3

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

  • 4

    Place chicken on the grill and cook until grill marks have formed and chicken is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer should read 165℉ in the thickest part of the chicken breast.
