I received an email last week from Katie Rosen Kitchen on this chili lime chicken recipe that I just couldn’t resist. I didn’t make it in time for the Memorial weekend BBQ but I made sure that I tried the recipe this week.
Oh boy, I am so happy I did. This chili lime chicken was absolutely delicious, juicy, flavorful, hitting all the right notes: citrusy, aromatic, with a pleasant nuance of the cilantro and garlic.
I made a small serving and regretted immediately that I didn’t make more as they were gone in no time.
My friend J came to my house to grill the chicken with me and the aroma while we were grilling was wafting through my neighborhood. It was mouthwatering.
For the chicken, the original recipe calls for chicken breast but I opted for chicken thighs with the skin and bone.
I removed the bones prior to marinating the chicken and still keep the skin. The end result is crispy skin, and tender juicy chicken meat.
I love the combination of chili, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice in the marinade. They pair so well with the chicken, with a tint of spiciness from the chili.
However, this recipe is not just for summer. You can make it anytime with a cast-iron grill pan or regular skillet, or bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes at 400F. The end result is always amazing.
