The smoky cilantro lime grilled chicken is the perfect summer treat with mind-blowing flavor combination – tangy lime with fresh cilantro! Can summer get better than this!
Cilantro with lime is a deadly combination together and you got to taste this amazing thing in this cilantro lime grilled chicken to truly understand its magic! Today’s recipe is a very quick and easy grilled chicken infused in a cilantro-lime marinade with an earthy hint of cumin; this cilantro lime grilled chicken is ideal for your summer barbecue. Also, you won’t need to marinade the chicken overnight – just couple of hours in the morning will do the trick since the major ingredient is lime juice which breaks down the chicken & infuse it much faster. Cilantro is my most favorite herb and it’s a quintessential herb in Indian cooking too which is why it always makes me feel nostalgic and brings back childhood memories. This cilantro lime grilled chicken is one of its kind and I knew from the very beginning that it’s gonna be my new favorite grilled chicken because of cilantro.
I am an herb person and I almost love all kind of herbs with very very few exceptions like dill which doesn’t make much an appeal to me. Basil is another favorite of mine which very closely competes with cilantro and you got to try my basil pesto roast chicken back to back with this cilantro lime grilled chicken to treat yourself with all the good things life has to offer us. My hub’s herb garden has been very generous to me thanks to all his hard work and now I don’t have to worry about the fresh sprinkle of parsley or cilantro at the very end. Herbs really make me happy as they add immense amount of freshness even being so tiny or quite small in amount. Don’t you think so?
