Fiesta Lime Chicken

Like at Applebee’s, but better. This is delicious and was never frozen or microwaved. So actually, not at all like Applebee’s. Or as it should be called, Crapplebee’s. Oops, better watch my language.

Fiesta Lime Chicken
Serves 4

1 pound boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1 lime
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 green onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. (Or, you could grill!) In a medium bowl, combine zest and juice of lime, olive oil, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, green onion, garlic, and a dash of salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

Place chicken breasts into plastic bag and cover with lime mixture.

Allow to marinate for one hour. Lay into glass 9×13 baking dish and bake for 25 minutes or until a meat thermometer reaches 165 degrees.

  1. I tried this the other day and it was a big success! I added just a pinch of sugar to the chicken before it cooked and I think it really cut some of the acidity and brought out more of the lime flavor! Also *good idea* I created tin foil packets! I laid down sliced sweet potato, bok choy, red and green pepper and then the chicken breast on top. I made individual packets and everything steamed and tasted great! Lots of veggies too!
