Lime Chicken Recipe

Lime chicken is perfect all year long as you can make it in the oven no matter what the season. Weather a sun filled or rainy day you can pull out your Indoor grill and make shish kebabs or on days simply to hot to cook indoors head outside and use the big grill and make kebabs. Do you love eating chicken; however, you get tired of the same chicken recipes? This lime chicken recipe is fantastic whether made in a casserole form or as lime chicken kebabs.
Using lean chicken breast, vitamin C packed lime, red, orange and yellow bell peppers, and sweet onions, such as a purple onion or a Vidalia onion; you can create a nutritious low calorie meal for your family inexpensively.

Ingredients for Lime Chicken Recipe:

  • 1 Tablespoon of lime juice, fresh squeezed or concentrates
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon of Himalayan salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper
  • 4-6 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts; cut into 1 ½-inch pieces
  • 1 Purple or sweet Vidalia onion; cut into wedges
  • 1 Orange bell pepper; cut into wedges
  • 1 Red bell pepper; cut into wedges
  • 1 Yellow bell pepper; cut into wedges

 

Direction for Lime Chicken Recipe:

  1. Using a large bowl squeeze the lime to get the juice. Rachel Ray’s trick to juicing lemons and limes is to firmly press and roll it around on the counter top or stick it in the microwave for 10 seconds.
  2. Stir into the limejuice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Cut the boneless skinless chicken breast into small 1 ½-inch pieces. If your pieces are too large, the cooking time increases and or you take a chance they will not cooked thoroughly. If you are making the casserole, the chicken chunks could be larger.
  4. Add the chicken to the lime mixture, stir and allow the chicken to marinate no less than 10 minutes.
  5. Taking skewers, start threading alternately, the peppers, onion and chicken. Mix up the colors of the peppers as you put them on the skewers making them look appealing as well as taste good.
  6. Grill the lime chicken kebabs approximately 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is 165 degrees Fahrenheit. If baking in casserole form, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 1 to 1 ½ hours, again the meat needs to be 165 degrees.
o      No matter which way you choose to make the lime chicken you will not be disappointed. Good for you meals, like this grilled lime chicken recipe; does not have to be boring it is simply good.
  • Whether grilling on your indoor DeLonghi Grill or making a casserole out of the lime chicken recipe, the only thing to make it even better is to pair it up with the vitamin C packed mango salsa.
