Chili-Lime Chicken

In a word… YUM! In a few more words from Jason… There is a very good flavor to the chicken, but it’s not overwhelming. A nice warm heat, not overly spicy. Just right. 😎 Perfect for grilling out, baking in the oven, or just sauteing in a skillet. However you choose to finish your chicken, this is a fantastic place to start.

1) Mix the following together in a small bowl:

1 tsp. red pepper flake

1 tsp. garlic powder (or you could use 1/2 tsp. fresh minced garlic)

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/4 tsp. ginger

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/8 tsp. salt

1/4 cup lime juice

2) Warm up a few teaspoons of oil in a skillet and add in the marinade mixture. Lay 4-5 chicken breasts in the pan and cook on one side until they are half done.

3) Flip the chicken over and finish cooking.

This is super simple and I like how all the flavors play nicely together. This is definitely a nice way to change up the usual chicken-cooked-in-butter that I fall back on when dinnertime sneaks up on me. I hope you like it too!
