Garlic Lime Chicken


This garlic-lime chicken recipe has been a favorite of my family’s for years. Everyone loves it, and once I tweaked the recipe just a bit, it fits into a clean “E” fuel. I serve it with sauteed vegetables (squash, zucchini, broccoli, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes), black beans and rice, and salsa.

 

Garlic-Lime Chicken, THM "E" recipeGarlic Lime Chicken – THM “E”

1/4 cup lime juice
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp crushed dried cilantro leaves, or 2-3 T fresh cilantro leaves, diced
1/4  tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 ½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 8 – skip the broth in the marinade if your chicken already includes it, otherwise the recipe will turn out too “wet”)

Combine all marinade ingredients in a resealable bag. Add chicken to bag and refrigerate overnight.

You can then cook this chicken in the slow cooker on low for 5 hrs. Or if you prefer, cook in a skillet with 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil, or substitute coconut oil cooking spray. The amount of fat in the finished product will still be less than 1 teaspoon, making it an “E” fuel.
