That’s my motto for 2015. Life just gets too darn complicated sometimes, like on Wednesday evenings when I’ve picked up one kid from chess club, another from a STEM after-school program, worked a 9-hour day and then decide to try a new recipe while doing laundry, feeding the dog and sorting the mail.
This easy chicken recipe follows that directive. However, for such ease, it’s full of flavor. The lime juice tenderizes the chicken beautifully while the olive oil ensures the flavor seeps into the meat. Of course, I love anything with hot sauce.
The recipe calls for marinating for four hours, but I like to do mine overnight.
Boneless, skinless chicken tenders or breasts are on sale this week, so heat up your winter with this chicken recipe.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix hot sauce, olive oil, lime juice and garlic. Place chicken in a pan, bowl or zippered bag; pour marinade over top, making sure the chicken is submerged in the marinade. Marinade for four hours in the fridge. Remove chicken from marinade and grill. Serve with lime slices.
