  • for the chicken
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp Better than Bouillon® Roasted Chicken Base
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • for the topping:
  • 1 jar queso dip
  • diced tomato
  • chopped cilantro


  • Combine first 6 ingredients in a gallon-size zip top bag. Close bag and squish it around with your fingers to combine ingredients.
  • The Better than Bouillon measures out so easily. The flavor is just like roasted chicken!
  • Add in chicken breasts. Squish it some more to make sure the marinade coats all the chicken pieces.
  • Place bag into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. When ready, preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill chicken on each side until internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165f degrees.
  • While chicken is cooking, prepare 3-Ingredient Mexican Rice. Warm up queso dip (this can be done on the stovetop or in the microwave). When chicken is ready, serve on top of rice.
  • Drizzle warm queso on top of chicken and garnish with diced tomatoes and cilantro.
  • Enjoy!
