Grilled Chili-Lime Chicken

Grilled Chili-Lime Chicken created by Boomette

This is great as a main dish, but if you have left-overs or make a double batch, the chicken can be cut into strips and frozen, then used on salads or in wraps for lunch. I have two recipes I'm posting that use these chicken strips: Chili-Lime Chicken and Avocado Wraps, Chili-Lime Chicken Mexi-Ranch Salad. I also use the leftovers for impromptu fajitas. (In our house, these are "Make it your own self" meals.) I've never tried this marinade on flank steak, but I bet all of the above would be great with it as well. If you try it before I do, please let me know how it turns out!

ingredients

directions

  • Combine all ingredients except chicken in a large zipper bag. Squish to combine. Add chicken, turn to coat well. Refrigerate and marinate for about 3 hours or so.
  • Heat grill to medium high. Remove chicken and discard remaining marinade. Grill chicken 4-5 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. This works well on an indoor or outdoor grill, but I wouldn't recommend baking it. If you absolutely can't grill it, you might get away with searing it in a skillet.
  • Leftovers can be sliced and frozen to be used later in other recipes. (See above).

    I made this recipe because I was looking for something new to do with everyday chicken. It smells great and looks good but I found that the lime left a bit too much tartness for what I was expecting. I'll add 1 tbsp of brown sugar the next time. Overall, a good recipe. KT

    I have actually baked with this recipe and it came out phenomenal. I have to say I liked it better baked but that's just my opinion

    I was looking for a chili lime chicken recipe and stumbled across this one from a simple Google search. I used a grill pan on the stove and had to double the cook time, but it came out great! This will definitely become a regular weeknight meal.

    My daughter usually hates chicken, but this recipe she loved, and so did my husband. It was so easy to make too.

    Wow! Yum! We didn't have chicken so used blade steak, sliced and marinated. Really delicious. We used tortillas with avocado, tomato, lettuce, sour cream and grated cheese. Will definitely cook this one again.<br/><br/>Cooked this again this evening with chicken breasts cut in half to make them thinner. Served with mashed potato, peas and corn - just as great with the chicken as the beef. Perhaps a little warmer in chilli heat though - but still delish!
