  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the chopped cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, minced garlic, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and black pepper to create the marinade.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure each piece is well-coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or preferably, overnight for maximum flavor.
  3. Preheat the grill or a skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade, allowing any excess to drip off.
  5. Grill the chicken for 6-8 minutes per side or until fully cooked, with an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  6. Once cooked, let the chicken rest for a few minutes before slicing.
  7. Serve the Cilantro Lime Chicken with your choice of sides, such as rice, vegetables, or tortillas.
