Mustard-Lime Chicken Recipe

Mustard-Lime Chicken


  • ½ cup fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts

A tangy, kid-friendly recipe that's perfect for grilling outdoors. Try serving it with a light salad on the side.


Combine the lime juice, cilantro, mustard, olive oil, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until ingredients are well combined. 

Place the chickens in a 7-by-11-inch Pyrex baking dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, cover with foil, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 6 hours. 

Heat a grill and cook chicken for 5-7 minutes per side until browned and cooked in the center. Serve and enjoy.
