Ginger and Lime Skillet Chicken

Starting this week with this very easy and tasty grilled chicken dish.  To the table in 30 minutes, which is great for those busier days. Much like my Tomato & Mozzarella Skillet Chicken, this one’s a keeper.

Notes About The Chicken

  • I used a cast iron grill for this chicken.  It honestly cooks the chicken perfectly as the heat is so even.  Not to mention those great grill marks!!!
  • Also, marinating isn’t essential but recommended.  You will have a more tender and flavoursome chicken, if you give it an hour to marinade.
