Cilantro Lime Chicken

Cilantro Lime Chicken

I was feeling like having some Mexican food today, so I whipped up a quick meal that I found on  I made a few adjustments to it, such as adding paprika, salt and pepper to the chicken.  I also cooked the chicken longer because I wanted a char on it, but the instructions will be for a normal cook time!

Cilantro Lime Chicken

  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp EVOO
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped


  • Pour EVOO into a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat.  Add chicken and cook about 8 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add lime juice once chicken is cooked through.  Lightly stir the browned bits from the pan.  Place chicken onto plate or bowl and sprinkle with cilantro.

This recipe goes great with Spanish Rice!
