Flavorful Cilantro-Lime Chicken Recipe

A incredibly delicious chicken recipe I turn to time and time again! It’s super easy yet always wows with flavor! Plus it only requires a few fresh ingredients and cooking it couldn’t be easier.

Not to mention everyone loves it! Who can resist those perfectly browned edges?

It’s versatile too. You can throw this cilantro-lime chicken in tacos, grill bell peppers alongside it and serve it fajita style, make a burrito bowl, or build up a tostada – piled high with the works of course.

Or just keep it super simple and serve it with rice and it’s still plenty good enough to impress.

The best way to brighten up chicken is with fresh citrus and this recipe is proof of that.

It’s grilling season so let’s enjoy!

Happy Cinco de Mayo to those celebrating!
