Sweet Chili Glazed Cilantro Grilled Chicken

Sweet Chili and Cilantro Grilled Chicken

The cilantro and sweet chili sauce is one of my favorite combinations! Just a few ingredients, this chicken is so fresh and vibrant and EASY.




  1. Add olive oil, vinegar and/or lemon juice, garlic and cilantro in a food processor and pulverize. If it’s too thick, add a little more vinegar or lemon juice. Pour the marinade into a bowl with the chicken, add salt and pepper and marinate over night if possible.  But whatever time you have will do!


  1. Remove chicken from the refrigerator about an hour before you grill to try and bring it to room temp (I always try and grill my meat close to room temp. It’ll be fine if you forget- just helps it cook more evenly and turn out more tender.)
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-hight heat for tenderloins (medium for breasts) and spray with cooking spray.
  3. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side. Brush chili sauce on chicken for the last minute of cooking to create a nice glaze.*
