Stir in oil and cilantro and turn to coast each side of chicken breasts in the marinade. Set chicken aside at room temperature for 2 hours (Can cover and regrigerate overnight). Cooking: If the cilantro-lime butter has been refrigerated, bring it to room temperature. Heat a grill, or adjust oven rack to high position and heat broiler. Grill or broil the chicken breasts until the juices run clear when pierced in the thickest part of the breast, turning once, 7 to 8 minutes per side. Serving: Transfer chicken breasts to warm dinner plates and top each with a tablespoon of herb butter.
