Cilantro Lime Chicken


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 medium limes, zest and juice
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp honey
salt and pepper to taste


In a ziploc bag add the olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, cumin, honey, salt and pepper and smoosh to mix. Add the chicken breasts and mix to coat. Refrigerate for a few hours to marinate.

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil (because it makes clean-up so much easier) and then spray with cooking spray. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the juices run clear.


Heat grill or grill pan to medium high heat and grill for about 6 minutes a side.

NOTE: You can also put the chicken into a bag with the marinade and then freeze it until you're ready to use it. Allow the chicken to thaw overnight in the fridge and then bake or grill according to the directions listed above.
