Cilantro Lime Chicken 

Cilantro Lime Chicken makes a great summertime meal served over salad.  After the meat marinates it only takes about 10 minutes of cook time so it doesn’t heat up the kitchen.  You could also grill the chicken outside or use a cuisinart griddler.  I use dried cilantro in my recipe because it is too hot in my area to grow this herb right now! Did you know that fresh cilantro is known to be a natural cleansing agent, cleansing toxic metals from your body?  To read about more health benefits of this herb, check out Medical News Today.

    I’m going to try this one! Looks yummy.

  2. This looks like the perfect summer dish.

  3. Looks and sounds delish! Stopping by from Link Party Palooza and pinning to Pinterest!

  4. Stopping by from a Little R & R Wednesday linkup. This looks yummy. And easy! About how many servings does this recipe make? Will I have leftover salad dressing? I’d like to maybe keep some of the dressing on hand.
    Thanks.

    • Thanks for stopping by! The dressing makes about 1 1/2 cups. There was definitely dressing left over! I got 3 servings from the chicken but you could easily get 4 depending on your ratio of chicken to salad. Hope that helps!

  5. Sounds great! Found it from the Pinnable party and pinned!

  6. This sounds amazing, I am so glad you linked up at Blogger’s Pit Stop. Thank you!

  7. THAT marinade sounds delicious!!! 🙂

  8. So kind of random but do you grow your own cilantro? I can never get mine to stop flowering.

    • I sometimes grow it in the cooler seasons. It’s too hot in Texas to grow it during the summer months. Although I bought an Aerogarden not too long ago so I’m going to try growing it in there.

  9. This sounds like a fabulous addition to our meal plan and I think I may already have everything on hand to make it! That’s a win!

  10. Going to try this
    Have a good week

    I absolutely adore how you put your blog together especially the floral edging at the bottom of your blog. Everything is so feminine and pretty. Very, very well done.
