Cilantro Lime Chicken Thighs

Cilantro Lime Chicken Thighs

Quick and simple citrus marinade helps bring these chicken thighs to life.



  • In a large bowl mix the olive oil, garlic, honey, zest and juice of limes, cilantro, chili powder, salt pepper and olive oil.
  • Add the chicken to the marinade, stir to coat well. Marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature or up to 2 hours covered in the refrigerator.
  • Heat a large cast iron pan, non-stick frying pan or a griddle over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chicken thighs in a single layer, so they are not touching.
  • Cook for 6 minutes on each side until the chicken thighs are cooked through, with an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. and no longer pink in the center.
