Lime Chicken

Lime Chicken

Lime Chicken infused with garlicky, savory lime flavors! The trick to getting depth of flavor in a simple lime marinade is to use soy sauce for saltiness, plus a touch of sugar for great caramelization. If you love lime flavor – and I’m yet to meet anyone who doesn’t – this Lime Chicken has your name written all over it. It’s juicy. It’s caramelized. And it truly tastes of lime. Grill it. Pan fry it. You can even bake it!

And it’s healthy, clocking in at under 300 calories per serving! The trick with fresh citrus based marinades is getting depth of flavor into it. If you just use lime juice, salt and garlic, the flavor is quite flat and the chicken – especially if using chicken breast – will lack something (because breast has virtually no fat, and fat = flavor). The Lime Marinade makes the chicken juicy on the inside and injects with flavor so you won’t need a sauce with it. And after resting the chicken for a few minutes before serving it, some of those juices will sweat to the surface. As for what to serve on the side, here are a few suggestions!

Lime Coconut Rice, Mushroom Rice – because this goes with everything! Lemon Potato Salad) – or everybody’s favorite creamy Bacon Potato Salad Sweet/savory Fondant Sweet Potato for contrast against the citrusy chicken. Super quick couscous salad – great emergency side with leftovers for lunch! Leafy greens with french dressing or balsamic dressing. Warm crusty rolls slathered with butter, garlic bread or quick cheesy garlic bread.
