Cilantro Lime Chicken is here to lend a little brightness and fresh flavor to your winter recipe repertoire. Marinated in a blend of citrus, spice, and savory flavors to give you chicken that is tender and flavorful with every bite. Make this on the stove or on the grill as the weather warms up!
Add the cilantro, olive oil, lime juice, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, black pepper and oregano to a large container and stir to combine.
Add in the chicken thighs, toss it in the marinade then cover and refrigerate for three hours, flipping halfway through to ensure that all the chicken gets fully marinated.
Stovetop instructions: Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan then add the chicken top side down into the skillet and let it sizzle and cook for about 5 minutes without touching it to get a crispy layer on the top.
Flip the chicken over and cook for another four to five minutes or until cooked through.
Grilling instructions: Heat a grill to 320 degrees Fahrenheit and oil the grates with olive oil.
Cook the chicken on the grill for about 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
Serve with lime wedges and garnish with freshly chopped cilantro if desired.
This chicken can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.
