Tangy Cilantro Lime Chicken with Mango Avocado Dressing

Tangy Cilantro Lime Chicken with Mango Avocado Dressing 0

This chicken is easy to cook and so flavorful! You can either make the cilantro lime chicken on its own or pair it with cilantro lime rice and an amazing mango avocado salsa to make a healthy summer meal.

Best Cilantro Lime Chicken and Mango Salsa Bowl

To make the cilantro lime chicken, simply whisk together marinade ingredients. Remove approximately ½ cup for later use. To make sure the chicken cooks evenly, pound out the breasts to an even thickness. You should use a meat mallet for this. Once you’ve mixed the chicken breasts into the marinade, leave in the refrigerator for anywhere from thirty minutes to 24 hours. To cook the chicken, you can grill, sauté, or bake—as long as it reaches 165 F. A digital meat thermometer would be helpful for this.

As the chicken is cooking, baste it with the marinade you kept aside. Place your chicken on top of cilantro lime rice and add the mango salsa for an amazing meal. The salsa’s texture and sweetness pairs great with the cilantro lime chicken. The mango and orange juice balance the chicken’s cilantro-lime tang. If you are shooting for low-carb, convert the meal into a salad by serving over finely chopped romaine lettuce and your favorite veggies.
