This is a staple for my low carb tendencies! However, I love this dumped all over my Cilantro Lime Rice! So flavorful, and easy! The aroma while cooking definitely causes some salivating!

Ingredients

3-4 Tbsp

3-4 lb
chicken thighs, skinless and boneless (chx breasts don't work well)

Add the garlic, onion, lime zest, and chilies.

Pour juice over all the chicken.
