This Honey Lime Chicken recipe with cilantro, soy sauce, chili, and garlic is one of the best chicken recipes ever! It's SO DELICIOUS! The honey lime chicken marinade infuses the chicken with fresh, savory flavors and makes it truly juicy and moist!
Pound the chicken breast lightly with a rolling pin.
Mix all marinade ingredients, add chicken, and marinate for a few hours at least, the best overnight.
Remove the chicken from marinade shaking off the excess.
Heat a little bit of oil in a large pan/skillet over medium heat. Place chicken breast and cook for 5 minutes each side, until golden brown.
Remove from the pan and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
If you use the bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs/drumsticks, bake the chicken for 50 minutes. If the chicken is browning too quickly, cover it loosely with aluminum foil.
