The secret to fancying up a whole cut-up, budget-friendly chicken is in the marinade. Our restaurant-style marinade is packed with fresh ingredients like lime, garlic, olive oil and cilantro. The result is a moist and flavorful Mexican Lime Chicken.

What You'll Need

  • 2/3 cup lime juice (juice of 4 to 5 limes)
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 garlic head, cloves separated, peeled and chopped
  • 1 (3-to 3 ½-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine lime juice, wine, oil, cilantro, and garlic.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and place in prepared baking dish. Pour lime mixture over top of chicken, cover, and marinate 20 to 30 minutes in refrigerator.
  3. Bake uncovered in a preheated 375 degree F oven 60 to 70 minutes, or until no pink remains and juices run clear.

Awesome recipe! My husband loved it! We were thinking of other ways to use this recipe like adding corn starch to the juice to make a sauce or refrigerating the marinade, after cooking with chicken breasts, straining grease off the top and using with the chicken in a salad as salad dressing. Can't wait to try these ideas with this recipe!
