Made from tamarind fruit — a tropical fruit that is rich in antioxidants — tamarind paste can be found in many Asian or ethnic supermarkets.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
- ⅓ cup lime juice

- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons tamarind paste
- 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
- ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
Preheat the grill.
In a blender, process the lime juice, olive oil, fish sauce, soy sauce, tamarind paste, garlic, and cilantro until smooth.
Place the marinade and the chicken breasts in a large, resealable plastic bag. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes. Remove and drain off excess marinade.
