Cilantro Lime Chicken

Cilantro Lime Chicken

This flavorful Cilantro Lime Chicken is one of the best chicken thigh recipes! The chicken is seasoned with a delicious marinade and then cooked in a skillet until caramelized and juicy. A quick and easy dinner idea, made with boneless or bone-in chicken thighs.

This cilantro lime chicken has livened up our dinner plates! With a flavor-packed marinade and quick skillet cooking method, this easy chicken recipe is perfect for any day of the week!

The cilantro lime marinade used on these chicken thighs is a new favorite of mine. It’s simple to make with just a few ingredients, and it infuses chicken with the best flavor!

Using chicken thighs in this recipe ensures that the chicken cooks up juicy and tender. I’ve cooked this chicken in a cast iron skillet, which gives it a delicious caramelized crust and makes this recipe one you can make year-round. We’ve also used this marinade on Grilled Chicken Thighs, and it works perfect that way too.
