Quick Cilantro Lime Chicken


Nothing better than a quick main dish that turns simple flavors into something amazing. This is certainly a 30-Minute Meal. To keep the meal really under 30 minutes add you favorite salad kit and some pre-cooked rice. Dinner doesn't get much easier.
 
Quick Cilantro Lime Chicken
2 chicken breasts--cubed
2-3 limes--zest one and juice all
4 cloves garlic--pressed
1/4 cup chopped cilantro 
salt
pepper
cumin
chili powder
cayenne pepper
Season chicken cubes liberally with seasonings--I would go lighter on the cayenne! Heat some olive oil in a pan until very hot. Add seasoned chicken, cook undisturbed for 3 minutes, when brown turn. Cook another few minutes until chicken reaches about 165 degrees. Add garlic and lime zest, cook for 30 seconds. Add lime juice and stir to release all the yummy goodness from the bottom of the pan. Top with cilantro.
Inspired by a recipe on this blog.
