Sweet Lime Chicken

Kelly Mike - Thursday, June 05, 2014


  • Chicken Breast or Tenders, desired amount
  • Olive Oil
  • Limes (3-4)
  • Lime Zest of 1-2 limes.
  • Coconut Sugar or Honey
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • *There are no measurements for this recipe
  • Optional: Top chicken with chopped cilantro


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Add your chicken to a baking dish large enough to where the chicken isn't too crowded together.
Drizzle olive oil on top of the chicken. (Enough olive oil to coat the entire top of the chicken. It's ok to be somewhat generous.) Then Squeeze your limes onto the chicken. (I used 1 and a half limes per side. Don't be shy. Squeeze enough juice to coat entire tops of chicken.)
Grate lime zest over the chicken, one lime per side.
Sprinkle coconut sugar on top of chicken, enough to coat entire top of chicken. If using honey, drizzle on top. Use enough to coat lightly.
Do the same with the remaining spices, paprika, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. Be generous.
Flip the chicken, and do the same to the other side ; olive oil, sweetener, and spices.
Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until internal temperature is close to 165 degrees. Cover at let sit for at least 5-10 minutes after baking to let the flavors come together.
Top chicken with chopped cilantro.
