Grilled Achiote-Lime Chicken

Achiote paste can be found in any Latin market and in many Asian markets or you can buy it online.




  1. Combine lime zest, lime juice, oil, egg, and achiote paste in a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Place chicken in a large resealable bag or large bowl and pour marinade over chicken. Toss to coat thoroughly. Seal (or cover) and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
  3. Heat grill to medium and grill chicken until juices run clear and it is no longer pink in the middle, about 20-30 minutes. You can also roast in a 425°F oven for 30 minutes.
