This Chili Lime Chicken is a true keeper! This gluten free recipe is great for oven baked chicken or for tossing on the grill. Fantastic flavour to spice up that boring chicken.
I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy chicken.
It is definitely the most popular protein around here so I definitely need lots of options to keep thins fresh.
This Chili Lime Chicken marinade is one of my favorites. I like to bake it in the oven but in the summer it also fabulous off of the BBQ.

HOW TO MAKE CHILI LIME CHICKEN
The chili lime glaze you get is from this delightful marinade.
Start with the juice of 2 limes. The best way to get the most juice out of your fruit is to give it a roll with the palms of your hands. This loosens the juice from the pulp.
Add the olive oil, chili powder, minced garlic and of course sea salt and pepper.
Shake it all together in a small mason jar.
Tip! I bought a three pack of this smaller sized jar and use them for dressings and marinades. The are so useful to have around the kitchen and they are a good size for storage.
Meanwhile pat dry the chicken and place it in a glass container.
Pour the marinade over your breasts and give them a nice massage (snicker snicker).
Cover and place in your fridge for 3 hours or overnight.
*I use breasts but this marinade could also be used for chili lime chicken thighs or chicken wings.
The result is some sweet chili lime chicken! It is juicy with a layers of garlicky, spicy, citrusy flavours that are such and improvement from the usual plain, same old same old.
