Who needs another chicken recipe? Every single one of us! With just five ingredients, this may be the shortest recipe ever published in Kitchen Parade. I remade this chicken recipe recently and was amazed: simple, moist, good chicken. Yes, we really do need one more good chicken recipe.
When supper absolutely positively must be on the table in 20 minutes, what do you turn to? Frozen pizza? Microwave dinners.
Instead, this week turn to lime chicken, fast, tasty and healthful. Add a salad and vegetable, then dig in!
LIME CHICKEN goes particularly well with the salad that's pictured, an Easy Refrigerator Salad with good crunch that's made with frozen vegetables and canned and frozen beans. It's a "concept recipe", easy to adapt to what's on hand and what sounds good.
Oven time: 10 minutes
- 1/2 cup honey mustard
- zest from 1 lime
- juice from 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (each about 4 ounces)
Stir together first five ingredients, reserve a couple of tablespoons in a separate small bowl for later. Spread atop chicken breasts, covering evenly and transfer to a foil-covered baking sheet.
Broil chicken until cooked through, about 3 – 4 minutes for each side, until the juices run clear. To avoid undercooking or overcooking the chicken, either one, use a digital thermometer. The chicken is done when the probe inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 160F/70C.
Brush the chicken with the reserved sauce. Serve and savor!
