How to Cook Roasted Lime and Cilantro Chicken Breasts

Lime and cilantro flavor these easy roasted chicken breasts. This chicken is delicious with rice and your favorite vegetable.


  • 4 chicken breast halves, bone-in
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro


Put chicken in a large plastic sealable food storage bag or covered container. Combine the oil, lime juice, salt, pepper, garlic, and cilantro. Marinate for about 2 to 4 hours.
Heat oven to 375°.
Line a baking pan with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Arrange chicken, skin-side up, in the baking pan.
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken registers 165° on an instant read thermometer stuck into the thickest part of the meat.
Serves 4.
