Cilantro and Lime is a classic flavor profile that I love and can be used on so many things, from meats to veggies. It’s my go to marinade for grilled chicken. I paired the chicken with a simple fresh salsa for an easy, healthy, and delicious meal thats quick enough for a weeknight dinner, but looks pretty enough for a special meal. This Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken With Avocado, Cucumber, and Tomato Salsa took less than 30 minutes from start to finish. That’s this busy Mama’s kind of cooking!
This Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken can be grilled on either an outdoor grill or indoors using a grill pan. Living in an apartment in New York City, I use my. grill pan a lot. I highly recommend a Cast Iron Grill Pan like this one from Legend for indoor use
