Cilantro Lime Chicken
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
10 ingredients
4 servings
My husband has recently declared my kitchen a cilantro-free zone :( so unfortunately I haven't yet tried this dish, but I am posting it because it sounds good to me and thought it might appeal to others as well. The recipe comes from Ainsley Harriott, a British chef, and he cautions not to marinate the chicken longer than two hours as the lime juice will break down the chicken to the point that it will fall apart. Preparation time does not include marinating time.
