Chipotle Lime Grilled Chicken
Chipotle Lime Chicken – ridiculously delicious and juicy grilled chicken recipe with chipotle chili, lime juice, garlic and cilantro!
What is better than chili lime chicken? This ridiculously delicious, absolutely mouthwatering and you-just-want-to-eat-them-off-your-screen chipotle lime grilled chicken. I bet you are hungry just buy looking at my pictures here.
I have been firing up the grill early this year and have been remaking old favorites such as chili lime chicken and creating new favorites such as cilantro lime chicken kebab. Needless to say, my entire fridge is filled with fresh limes, bunches of cilantro and lots of chicken thighs. Good things happen when you marinate chicken (skin-on please) with lots of lime, cilantro, and spice it up with some heat, for example: chipotle chili powder.
This chipotle lime grilled chicken is SO good. The crispy and slightly charred skin, moist, juicy and citrusy chicken meat bursting with the flavors of the marinade, with the signature smoky heat from chipotle chili powder. I was transported to grilled chicken heaven, and the recipe reinforces the reason why I LOVE summer SO much. The amazing summer food, the BBQ smell lingering in my backyard, the refreshing cold drinks, and the eternal warmth of the sun.
Now, this chipotle lime chicken is not only for outdoor grill. You can easily make this amazing recipe in an oven, or even pan-seared in a regular skillet or cast-iron grill pan. The end result will be somewhat similar and satisfying. With Memorial Day weekend just around the corner, this is the perfect recipe for your family and your guests!
