Cilantro Lime Chicken

I found this really great Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe in the Eating Healthy section of Woman’s Day magazine. Normally I glimpse over the section and toss because they rarely have any recipes, that although I might enjoy them, I feel my kids would not eat it. This time I found a few recipes to try Cilantro Lime Chicken being one of them.

A couple summers ago I had this obsession with cilantro and limes. I could not get enough. I tried several Cilantro Lime Chicken recipes but was never impressed. In this particular recipe the hint of sweetness from the honey, the pungent cilantro and tart lime build upon one another creating a nice mingling of flavors making this my go to recipe for fajitas. I doubled the marinade and used it to baste the chicken while cooking. The flavor was perfect.

Cilantro Lime Chicken:
1 tbsp
1 honey
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 chicken breasts

In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, honey, lime juice and cilantro. Pour this mixture over the chicken breast and marinate for 20 minutes. Discard marinade.

Grill or broil chicken for 6-8 minutes per side until it is cooked through and no longer pink.
