    For the chicken: Place chicken breasts in a glass container. Season with salt, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and oregano. Cover and refrigerate. You can do this at least an hour ahead of time or you can leave it marinating from the night before, turn once in a while so the chicken marinates evenly.

    Once you’re ready to cook them, preheat the grill, remove excess marinade from chicken and cook the breasts. Cook for a few minutes until golden, turn over and finish the cooking process. Move them to a plate and let them rest for a few minutes.
