Cilantro Chicken

Chicken is one of the mainstays of our diet but it gets boring sometimes. Because we live in an apartment, we are not allowed gas or charcoal grills, so we got an electric grill. I was looking forward to grilling some chicken and had lots of limes and cilantro to use up so I experimented with this recipe. Unfortunately, our grill wasn’t working so I turned the oven up to 400º F and roasted it.

One thing to remember, when roasting, you need to make sure you oil your sheet pan (about 1 Tbsp) and do NOT dump all the marinade over the chicken. Otherwise, you’ll end up steaming the chicken.

  1. Combine all the ingredients into a gallon zip lock bag. Add chicken and make sure chicken is coated. Close up the bag and allow to marinate for an hour. Place chicken on a sheet pan. Roast for 22-30 min
Recipe Notes

If you have garlic allergies, try substituting an infused oil or omit altogether. Not sure what the timing would be if you grill the chicken, but I think it would be about 8-10 min per side. Serve with Corn-on-the-Cob, roasted red potatoes, or a crisp summer salad.
