Garlic-Lime Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by 3KillerBs

The bright, fresh flavor of lime sparks up a simple chicken for the grill or the broiler. Too tasty to believe that its healthy! Removing the skin cuts the cholesterol. Adding a little heart-healthy olive oil preserves the juiciness. Its nice and quick too because, unlike many recipes of the sort, it does not require long marinating.

This was a good recipe. I made this as a OAMC recipe, making the marinade and dumping the chicken in with it. I then froze it, thawed, drained and baked in the oven. It was good. Very limey! I bet it would be very good grilled.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together everything except the chicken in a large bowl.
  2. Add the chicken and toss to coat thoroughly.
  3. Let sit for 15 minutes. Toss again.
  4. Grill or broil quickly on medium-high heat until just barely done.
  5. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
  6. Tip -- For the maximum flavor and juiciness I recommend the use of bone-in chicken parts.
  7. Tip -- if doing your own chicken parts (see Recipe #232601 ), its easiest to remove the skin by grasping it with a wet, lint-free dishcloth.
  8. Note -- Cooking time may vary due to the specific parts chosen.
  9. Note -- Recommended for OAMC. Freeze it in the marinade and grill when thawed.
