We all love easy things and this recipe couldn't be easier. The bonus is it's also delicious!
I'm always amazed at how much time can be saved by working just a little bit ahead.
When chicken breast and thighs go on sale I purchase the club pack and freeze them in meal size portions in freezer storage bags. Usually this is where the process ends.
However this time I made a double batch of this cilantro lime marinade and added it to the chicken before freezing. This allowed the chicken to marinade while it was freezing and defrosting. It also made a week night dinner just that much easier.
I baked the chicken thighs which worked great! But this recipe will also be delicious on the grill this summer - can't wait!
- 1/3 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
- 1 tbsp garlic, minced
- Zest of 1 lime
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup olive oil
Bake boneless chicken thighs at 425 F for about 25 minutes or until the internal temperature is 74 C (165 F). I also turned them over about half way through. I think this would work great in the slow cooker - if you try it let us know how it turns out.
