It’s time for some summer grilling and up first I have some super easy and tasty cilantro and lime grilled chicken! The cilantro and lime flavour combo is such a simple one and yet it’s so amazingly good! If you marinate the chicken the night before it’s quick and easy since all you need to do is throw it on the grill giving you more time to spend on sides or with friends and family. This cilantro and lime grilled chicken is great all by itself or you could serve it topped with a sauce or salsa and make plenty of extras because it’s also really nice in a salad for tomorrows lunch!
