Who needs a Mexican restaurant when you have this recipe? This chicken is seasoned with cumin, coriander, garlic, sea salt and then broiled till the skin is crispy and the chicken is tender perfection!
Drizzled with fresh lime juice and sprinkled with red pepper flakes….amazing. This dish is great alone or topped with my mango salsa! (<—recipe)
The Recipe: Spicy Lime Chicken
You will need: A broiler pan and foil.
4 chicken thighs and 4 small breasts, bone in, skin on
Freshly ground black pepper
Red pepper Flakes
2 Limes quartered
Cilantro (for garnish)
Turn oven to broil and place oven rack in center position. Line inside of broiler pan with foil and replace top.
Brush both sides of chicken with olive oil and sprinkle evenly with sea salt, pepper, coriander, cumin and garlic powder.
Place prepared chicken skin side down on broiler pan and place in oven for 18 minutes. Turn skin side up and cook for 12 more minutes or until juices run clear. If skin starts to get too brown before chicken is done, cover with foil or move to the lowest oven rack the last few minutes of cooking.
When chicken is done, remove from oven and drizzle with fresh lime juice. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes to taste and garnish with cilantro if desired. Serve with mango salsa and watch people be very very happy.
