Tender marinated chicken in a wickedly spicy green chili sauce.



  1. Combine oil, juice from one lime, oregano, and black pepper in shallow, glass baking dish. Stir.
  2. Place chicken breasts in baking dish and turn to coat each side. Cover dish and refrigerate overnight. Turn chicken periodically to marinate it on both sides.
