My oldest daughter decided about a year ago that she was going to stop eating red meat. As proud of her as I am for trying something new, it hasn't been the easiest eating the same chicken recipe every night for dinner. But then I found this amazing lime and cilantro chicken, and it was a hit! It strays from the usual taste of chicken, but still has tons of flavor and pairs great with homemade Mexican rice! I also accidentally whipped up some fresh guacamole.. Yum!
First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2 1/2 pounds of chicken
2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro
1 lime, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon of honey
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Next, spray a large pan with cooking spray and add the chicken in a single layer onto the pan. In a small bowl, add the cilantro, lime zest and juice, honey, garlic, pepper, and salt, whisking until combined. Then, pour the mixture onto the chicken evenly, and pop into the oven for 45-50 minutes.
This recipe is so easy to just pop in the oven and serve on a school night or just after a busy day!
