One of the diversities of making this dish and loving it is the ability to cook it in whatever manner you prefer and/or is most convenient for you I have grilled it on the outdoor BBQ grill, I have pan-fried it in a skillet, broiled it, used my indoor grill-pan to sear then finished baking it in the oven…any and all may produce absolutely wonderful results

How To Make Awesome Garlic Chile Lime Chicken

Chicken breast dressed in garlic chile lime sauce.

  • 4 chicken breasts (skinned and boneless if you prefer)
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 4 limes zest (depending on the size and your personal preference)
  • 4 limes (juice)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced (more if you prefer))
  • ½ tsp dry mustard powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper (freshly cracked )

Garlic Chile Lime Sauce

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cloves garlic (chopped/minced)
  • ¼ cup chilies (finely minced )
  • lime zest
  • lime juice
  1. Whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, lime zest and juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and mustard until well combined.
  2. Place chicken in bowl and pour sauce over all, coating evenly cover and marinate in refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes but I wouldn’t suggest allowing it to sit for any more than 2 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade and sprinkle with salt and pepper reserving marinade for basting the chicken as it cooks if you prefer…otherwise, discard marinade.
  4. Cook chicken in whatever manner you prefer until a fork can be inserted in chicken easily and the juices run clear.

Garlic Chile Lime Sauce

  1. Add all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until sauce is smooth and creamy.

  2. Taste for seasonings as you may want to add some salt and/or pepper at this point and/or even additional citrus/peppers…it’s all up to you.
  3. Serve chicken with sauce drizzled on top or on the side.

Note: I have had the leftovers of this dish the next day on top of salad greens with chopped onions, sliced radishes, sliced cucumbers and shredded cheese…using the cold sauce as dressing.
