  • Cilantro Lime Chicken

    I made this last night, it was yummy!

    AUTHOR: BECKY HARDIN The Cookie Rookie

    2 tablespoons olive oil
    cup lime juice from 2 limes
    cup chopped fresh cilantro
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    teaspoon ground cumin
    teaspoon garlic powder
    teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoons kosher salt
    teaspoon ground black pepper
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


    Whisk the olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, and seasonings together in a bowl.

    Place the chicken in a greased baking dish.

    Pour the marinade over the chicken. Cover the dish, and let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes or as long as overnight.

    Preheat oven to 425F.
    Bake the chicken for 25-30 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165F. (20 minutes for boneless skinless thighs)


    Marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes.

    I do not recommend using bottled lime juice, as it has a less fresh flavor.

    For a sweeter marinade, add 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup!

    Fully cooked chicken should be 165F internally.

    Storage: Store cilantro lime chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

    Charlene’s notes 2-25-2023: This was excellent and easy. I marinated it for a full day and used boneless skinless thighs for it.
