Our last menu requires that you put most everything together in the morning, then while the chicken is grilling outside, you assemble the vegetable burritos and transfer the watermelon salsa to a pretty serving dish. The salsa is an adaptation of a terrific Watermelon Salad. If you must have dessert, pile sliced strawberries and sliced kiwi in pretty dessert bowls.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 5 ounces (150 g) each
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh orange juice
1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon (5 ml) chili powder
1/8 teaspoon (0.6 ml) crushed red pepper flakes
Rinse chicken beast halves and remove all visible fat. Pat dry with paper towels.
In a shallow dish, whisk together remaining ingredients. Add chicken breast halves and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for several hours.
When ready to cook, light a grill.
Bake about 5 minutes per side, until done. Serve at once.
