Recipe printed from Jenn's Food Journey, strangely adapted from Steven Raichlen's Planet Barbecue!
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 slices white sandwich bread, crusts cut off (I actually used honey wheat bread because we had it on hand)
2 Tablespoons pecans, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2 Tablespoon lime juice
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Place the slices of bread in a bowl and add enough warm water to cover. Let the bread soak for 5 minutes, then drain it well in a strainer. Using your hands, squeeze the bread well to wring out any excess liquid. (it's a gross job, I know, but it must be done!!)
Place the bread, pecans, and garlic in a food processor and puree to a smooth paste. Withe the processor running, gradually work in the lime juice, vegetable oil, and olive oil in a thin stream to obtain a smooth sauce. Add the salt and pepper and pulse just to combine. Pour over chicken and allow to marinate for 1-4 hours (the longer the better).
Preheat grill to medium-high. Oil grill grates. Remove chicken from marinade and place directly over the fire. Grill for 8-10 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from grill and allow to sit for 3 minutes before cutting into it. Enjoy!
