Cilantro Lime Chicken






Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs  chicken thighs with skin or chicken breast
Lime wedges,and cilantro for garnishing
Marinade:
3 tablespoons olive oil
2ts  garlic powder
4 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro stems and leaves
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 heaping teaspoon red chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt or more to taste
Method:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Whisk all the Marinade ingredients together in a big bowl, mix well. Add the chicken into the Marinade, stir to coat well. Marinate for 15 minutes but best for 2 hours. I like to do mine the night before.
Heat up a skillet and pan-fry the chicken with the skin-side down until slightly browned. Turn over and pan-fry the other side of the chicken until slightly browned.

Transfer the skillet into oven and bake for 20 minutes. Transfer the chicken and the Marinade residual  squirt some fresh lime juice and garnish with cilantro, and as always a family that eats together stays together. or if you cook it on the grill and use breast cook 4 minutes per side after slicing the breast thin
