  • 2 lbs chicken breast cubed
  • 3 cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  • Place cubed pieces of chicken into a large bowl and set aside.
  • Measure and pour remaining ingredients into a blender and blitz until garlic and cilantro have broken down into tiny pieces. Pour over chicken and stir to coat. Cover and marinate in fridge for 1-2 hours.
