Step 1

Combine the zest and juice of 2 limes, Olive Oil, Mustard, Worcestershire, Soy, 3 onions, 2 garlic cloves salt and pepper and mix well.

Cut chicken into even cutlets and place in a gallon sized baggie.

Pour marinade over the chicken and marinate for 2+ hours (I marinate overnight)

Preheat grill or grill pan

Place chicken on grill and grill for 7 minutes.

Then flip and cook until internal temp reaches 170.

Remove from grill and let meat rest.
