Servings: 4 servings 2 lbs chicken breast (or thighs), (4 small/medium chicken breasts) 3 Tbsp olive oil 1/4 cup lime juice, (freshly squeezed) 3 garlic cloves, minced 3 Tbsp cilantro, finely chopped, plus more to garnish 1 tsp salt ½ tsp ground black pepper 1 tsp ground paprika 1 Tbsp honey 1 lime, cut into wedges for serving

How to Make Cilantro Lime Chicken In a bowl, combine oil, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper, paprika, and honey for the marinade.


Add the chicken to the mixture and allow to marinate for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours then cook the chicken either on the grill, in a skillet, or bake it in the oven (see instructions below). Once it's cooked, serve with lime wedges and garnish with more cilantro if desired.

How to Grill Chicken Preheat the grill to medium heat. Cover and grill the chicken for 4-5 minutes per side, depending on thickness, or until cooked through.

To Cook Chicken in a Skillet Set a large non-stick, non-reactive skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp oil and sautee chicken in a single layer for 4-5 minutes per side until browned and cooked through, depending on the thickness of your chicken. If your chicken is very thick, cover the chicken with a lid after you flip it. 

How to Bake Chicken Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the chicken breast on a lined baking sheet or large casserole dish. Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes or until cooked through.
