Grilled Mexican Chicken has bold Mexican flavors that will not disappoint.

If you’re craving a grilled chicken recipe that’s BIG on flavor, I gotcha covered!

How to make Grilled Mexican Chicken

The marinade for this does have a good amount of ingredients, but I am kind of a spice hoarder and had all of these already.

Mix together the following…

olive oil, honey, lime juice, chili powder, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, kosher salt, pepper, cumin, ground red pepper, and cinnamon.

Yep…that’s it 😉

When you mix this together, it forms a thick paste.

Place a few chicken breasts in a gallon size plastic bag along with this marinade and massage the bag until evenly mixed.

Marinate at least an hour or overnight in the fridge.

When ready to grill, set the grill to medium heat.

Place the chicken on and grill for about 12 minutes total, flipping it halfway through.

The marinade for this is so thick that it really sticks to the chicken nicely.
