Cilantro Lime Chicken Ingredients

  • Chicken: I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
  • coriander lime Marinade: For the marinade, I use lemon juice, salt, chili flakes, honey, coriander leaves, garlic, olive oil, smoked paprika, coriander, cumin powder, and black pepper.

How to Make Cilantro Lime Chicken

  • Make the marinade: In a bowl, mix all the marinade ingredients.
  • Marinate the chicken: Add the chicken and coat well with the marinade. Marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Roast the chicken feet: Preheat grill, then spray grill with a splash of oil and grill chicken until cooked through inside for 5-8 minutes or core temperature reaches 165 F.

Tips and Notes for Making Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken

  • Fresh lime is ideal for this recipe. I wouldn’t recommend using bottled lime juice for this because it has that bright, fresh citrus flavor.
  • To spice it up, you can add more chili flakes or even a bit of cayenne pepper.
  • Always use a preheated grill so the chicken doesn’t stick.
  • You can grill chicken in the oven, on the indoor grill, or on the outdoor grill. For the best flavor, I recommend grilling outside to get the flavor of the charcoal.
  • For more flavor, you can reserve ¼ of the marinade before adding the chicken to the marinade. When the chicken is grilled, you can sprinkle the reserved marinade over the thighs before serving. Be sure to use the reserved marinade. Do not use the marinade in which the raw chicken feet were marinated.
