Chili Lime Chicken

The Listing Lime Tree

The Plethora of Peppers

Our lime tree is so full of limes it’s drooping to one side. I also have a ton of red chili peppers in a pot, so I marinated some chicken to use some of it up.

Chili Lime Chicken

Serves 6

6-8  chicken thighs
3 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs green onions, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 red chile pepper, minced
4 Tbs fresh lime juice
1 Tbs chili powder
1½ tsp cumin
salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients except chicken in a large zipper bag. Add chicken, turn to coat well. Refrigerate and marinate for about 3 hours or so.

Heat grill to medium high. Remove chicken and discard remaining marinade. Grill chicken 4-5 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. This works well on an indoor or outdoor grill, but I wouldn’t recommend baking it. If you absolutely can’t grill it, you might get away with searing it in a skillet.
