Lemon-Lime Chicken Broil with Bean Salad

Simplicity is sometimes key. There are certain flavors I associate with simplicity. The taste of lemon does this for me. It is clean tasting, fresh, and while a strong taste is not overpowering. It doesn't need much to make it special. Lemon is just pure goodness.

Lemon-Lime Chicken Broil

1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
Italian seasoning and salt to taste

1. In a small bowl mix together the lemon juice, lime juice, and olive oil. Place chicken pieces in the marinade and refrigerate for an hour.

2. Preheat the broiler of your oven. Fill the roasting pan with water.

3. Remove chicken from the marinade and arrange on the pan. Season with Italian seasoning and salt. Pour the marinade in a saucepan.

4. Broil the chicken for 10 minutes, basting often. Turn and broil for 10 more minutes.
