cilantrolimechickensalad-1.jpgInspired by a popular McDonald’s salad, this entree combines the fresh, light taste of lime with cilantro. Orange and Yellow Peppers and thinly sliced onions add their own flavor note. This could also be a great fajita filling, served with fresh homemade flour tortillas.

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Juice and zest from 1 limes
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
pinch red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp Better Batter all purpose flour
1/2 each orange pepper, yellow pepper, and onion, thinly sliced
2-3 tbsp olive oil

Mix all ingredients, except the peppers and onion,and oil, and marinate overnight.

Heat the oil in a heavy frying pan over medium high heat.

Pour the meat AND marinade into the pan and let cook for approx. 15 minutes, turning the chicken once one side is browned.

Add the peppers and onion, making sure they touch the pan (you can move the chicken on top), cover the pan, and cook another 10-15 minutes, or until done.
