Recipe – Cilantro Lime Chicken

In a rushed effort to figure out a creative way to cook chicken I had thawed tonight, I skimmed through my Pinterest boards and came across this Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe from one of my favorite blogs Deals to Meals.

It was already 5pm (we usually sit down for family dinner around 6pm) so I didn’t have time to marinade the chicken like the recipe called for. So I had to get creative!!  I just mixed all the spices the recipe called for in a small bowl and then mixed in maybe half of the lime juice and olive oil.

I had cut up all the chicken breasts into small chunks and then poured the spice mixture on top of it and just stirred it until it coated all the chicken pieces while I had my pan heating up. Then I dumped all the coated chicken pieces into the hot skillet and cooked for several minutes until cooked through. In another skillet I sautéed some bell pepper strips – would have done onions too but we were all out.

I ate mine on a heated corn tortilla, with a wedge of Chipotle flavored Laughing Cow Cheese, and 1/2 cup of chicken and some bell pepper strips. It was sooo good!!!  I loved the flavor and spices of the chicken and it really changed it up since I’ve been so bored with chicken! :)  This was a great recipe to boost the flavors.

You could eat this seasoned chicken so many different ways!  I actually served it to my hubby and kids as chicken quesadillas made out of our favorite Ole’ high fiber tortillas and shredded cheese served with homemade salsa.  Yum! ;)
