Looking for a delicious and healthy chicken recipe? This cilantro lime chicken recipe might interest you.
Cilantro Lime Chicken requires boneless and skinless chicken breasts to be marinated in lime, cilantro, olive oil, and spices. It is recommended to marinade the chicken overnight to absorb all the flavors. Once the chicken absorbs the flavor, the chicken is grilled until both sides are just about done. This maintains the juices inside the chicken which makes it tender, tasty, and succulent.
I like to enjoy my food without feeling guilty about it. That is the reason why I like this chicken recipe. It is low in fat and high in protein.
I love having this dish along with some steamed broccoli or asparagus. Sometimes I eat this with sauteed spinach too. You can use your imagination and pair this chicken recipe with whatever sides you want.
