Juicy and tender cilantro lime chicken infused with the flavors of fresh cilantro, tangy lime, and classic Mexican seasonings in an easy marinade.

Let’s get started!

- chicken - cilantro - lime juice - olive oil - garlic - kosher salt - onion powder - ground cumin

Ingredients Needed

For a sweeter marinade, blend in 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey. It will add a little bit of a sticky sweetness that’s so good!

*Quick Tip!*

Add the cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, onion powder, and ground cumin to a food processor or blender. Pulse until smooth.


Place the chicken in a bowl, make sure to poke holes in the meat, and pour marinade on top. Refrigerator for at least 1 hour.


Heat some olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken for 4-5 minutes with the skin side down until they’re golden brown.


Bake it for 15 minutes, until cooked through. Garnish with a sprinkle of cilantro and lime wedges before serving.
