Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken

Cilantro lime grilled chicken is healthy meets flavorsome! Chicken breasts are quickly marinated in a cilantro-lime dressing and then lightly grilled to keep tender.

A quick 15-minute soak in the marinade will give the chicken plenty of flavor. But, if you have the time, marinate the chicken, in the cooler overnight for even more flavor.

This chicken dish is topped with fresh avocados, cilantro, and lime juice. It tastes great with a side of chips and guacamole or served wrapped in warm tortillas.
