  • 1 teaspoon salt

Start by tenderizing the chicken breasts by gently pounding them with a meat mallet or rolling pin. In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, cumin, oregano, salt, and black pepper.

Immerse the chicken in the marinade, ensuring it’s well coated.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight for enhanced flavor.While the chicken marinates, prepare the delectable creamy green sauce. In a food processor or blender, combine the fresh cilantro, parsley, jalapeno pepper, sour cream, mayonnaise, and lime juice.

Pulse until smooth and creamy.

Season with salt and pepper to your preference.Next, preheat your grill or grill pan over medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard any excess marinade.

Grill the chicken breasts for 8-10 minutes per side, or until cooked through and slightly charred.Once the chicken is perfectly grilled, it’s time to assemble your dish.

Spoon a generous amount of the creamy green sauce onto each plate and top with the tender and flavorful grilled chicken breasts. Garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley, and serve immediately with your favorite sides for a tantalizing Peruvian-inspired meal.
