Cilantro Lime Chicken

I figured I would share the recipe for the cilantro lime chicken that I cooked for dinner last night.  It was absolutely delicious and didn't take long at all.

  • 1 lb boneless chicken breast
  • 3 limes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • coconut oil
  • Cumin
  • Chili Powder
  • Cilantro, 1/4 cup, snipped

  1. Melt coconut oil (1-2 tsp) into a large skillet over medium high heat.  Cut chicken into chunks.  Once oil is heated throw them in there.
  2. Let the chicken cook for about 5 minutes.  Sprinkle generously with chili powder and cumin.  I put about 1.5 T of each on the chicken.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked about halfway, flip to let other side cook.
  4. Once chicken is cooked all the way, lower heat to medium low and add 4 cloves of garlic (this looks like a lot, but it's good) and the zest of one lime in the pan.  Stir and let cook for a few minutes more.  
  5. Remove pan from heat, squeeze the juice of three limes and scrape all the browned goodness from the bottom of the pan.
  6. Throw the cilantro in, stir, and serve!
