Lime Grilled Chicken Breast


I’m always on the lookout for quick dinner recipes. Chicken recipes are even better! Sometimes I need a last minute chicken recipe because it was a busy day and I didn’t plan dinner. I love lime and pretty much anything. This recipe is great because I have everything on hand. I open my pantry and measure out the few ingredients and dinner is halfway done! This grilled chicken breast recipe marinates while the grill is heating up.

Little Chef A has been helping out a lot with the cooking lately because of our crazy schedule. Over the phone we discuss what needs to be done. She will complete that task and then call me for the next. She has been assisting for a long time so I trust her and know she can do a great job. She is able to measure out all the spices and get the marinade ready. All I need to do is come home and start grilling.

Next time you need a last minute recipe try this one. If you don’t have the avocado butter (which is super easy to prepare) it will still be delicious. You can always slice the cooked chicken, add some veggies and wrap it up in a tortilla. Lime Grilled Chicken Breast works great with mexican flavors – one of our favorites!

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!
