Looking for an easy recipe? This easy one skillet creamy cilantro lime chicken is so flavorful! It only takes a few minutes to prep and cook and you’ll have dinner in no time!
I was thumbing through my recipe notebook trying to find something easy that I could make for dinner. When my fingers turned to this luscious chicken recipe. I literally had just about everything on hand already, I only had to run and get the chicken.
I pulled it all together in minutes. Made some cilantro lime rice and… you know it… I roasted broccoli. The good old standby side dish.
You guys this dish is so flavorful and smells heavenly. Creamy without being heavy or overly rich, the cilantro and lime help with that. It was just the thing to break me out of our taco/baked chicken/spaghetti rut.
Not the most glorious picture of chicken, but oh well. I seasoned both sides of 8 chicken cutlets with kosher salt, black pepper, ground cumin, paprika and chili powder. No measurements needed.
Then I heated a large skillet and added 2 teaspoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter. Then just cook the chicken for about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate for a moment while you make the creamy cilantro lime sauce.
I reduce the heat to low and add in the 1/2 cup of red onions and cooked them for a bit until soft and then added in the garlic. To that I added chicken broth, lime zest and juice, brown sugar and Dijon mustard.
Once those ingredients are combined I turned the heat to low and add in the cream and cilantro.
Then simply returned the chicken to the pan (and any juices that have collected on the plate), spoon the creamy sauce over the top of each cutlet and continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink.
That’s it! See how crazy simple this easy one skillet creamy cilantro lime chicken is. It’s brilliant. It’s flavorful and takes only minutes of prep and a few more minutes to cook, making this recipe perfect for any night of the week.
