Cilantro-Lime Grilled Chicken
This marinated grilled chicken is not only fast and easy, it's also budget-friendly and kid-approved! Serve with lime wedges and pico de gallo.
It's not necessary to use a whole chicken. You can use only legs and thighs to save money or whatever your local supermarket has on sale that week! This is great for skirt steak and pork as well!
Marinating is not necessary if you are in a hurry; just toss your chicken in the mixture and place on the grill.
If you do not have a grill, bake chicken in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until no longer pink at the bone and juices run clear, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
