Cilantro Lime Chicken and Dressing


Cilantro lime chicken, when added to a salad makes a great summertime meal.  After the meat marinates it only takes about 10 minutes of cook time so it doesn’t heat up the kitchen.  You could also grill the chicken outside or use a cuisinart griddler.  I use dried cilantro in my recipe because it is too hot in my area to grow this herb right now! Did you know that fresh cilantro is known to be a natural cleansing agent, cleansing toxic metals from your body?  To read about more health benefits of this herb, check out Medical News Today.
