I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes for chicken breast, so I was mighty happy when a reader left this comment on my post for grilled Mustard-Lime Chicken:
Fantastic chicken! Our son was just diagnosed with celiac disease about one month ago, and I have to tell you that your recipes have been such a help. We all loved the chicken, and I ended up baking it at 350 until it was cooked (25-30 minutes) since it rained the day I made it and couldn't use the grill — flavor was still excellent! Thank you!
This recipe for chicken breast is full of flavorful lime and cilantro, and when you bake it (rather than grilling) the flavors have a chance to entirely infuse the dish. Thanks for this excellent suggestion Ana!
I don't know if your children will like this easy chicken dish; I can tell you that mine gobble it up every time I make it. If you're looking for healthy recipes for dinner, look no further, this chicken is it.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the lime juice, cilantro, mustard, olive oil, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a food processor and pulse until ingredients are well combined.
Rinse the chicken breasts, pat dry, and place in a 7-by-11-inch Pyrex baking dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, cover, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 6 hours.
Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes uncovered, or until an instant-read thermometer reaches 165 degrees. Serve with the extra sauce spooned on top.
