the best chicken recipe ever

Cilantro Lime Chicken

I was looking for a great chicken recipe to cook for a quick dinner, and I came across this recipe.  Even though the recipe was super easy, I did end up cutting some corners, so I’ll list out my recipe and step-by-step instructions below:


  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • olive oil
  • garlic salt
  • cumin
  • cayenne
  • cilantro flakes


  1. Prep by juicing limes and mincing garlic.
  2. Cut the chicken into small nuggets.
  3. Pour olive oil into skillet and heat over medium high heat.  When the oil is almost smoking, add chicken and let it cook, “undisturbed.”
  4. Sprinkle chicken with garlic salt, cumin, cayenne, and cilantro flakes.  Cook for a minute or two.
  5. Turn the chicken and let it brown.  Reduce the heat to medium low and add minced garlic.  Stir and cook, but don’t let the garlic burn!
  6. Once the chicken is cooked through, add the lime juice and stir.
  7. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!  (I had broccoli, but you can do mexi-rice and avocado if you’d like!)
