    Cilantro is one of those tastes that people either love or hate. Whatever your opinion, it has become widely used in recent years, particularly in Mediterranean and Mexican cooking.

      This is really delicious chicken and we loved the combination of the lime, cilantro and of course, the garlic and butter. I baked these breasts in the oven vs. the grill and they turned out really well. Will definitely keep this recipe on my "short list" as it was really tasty. Will try the grill next time. Made for the Went To Market tag, July, 2013.
