Sometimes when camping or at a tailgate, I’ll go all out and whip up my favorite gourmet camping recipes but then there are those other times it’s nice to just have some easy camping dinners. This Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe is easy to make and an easy camping meal for groups or your family.
It’d be great served in tacos or alongside salad, rice or some grilled vegetable kabobs. The leftovers make a great lunch the next day too!
How to make Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken
Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 3 limes
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper
Marinate the chicken breasts in the olive oil, the juice of two limes and half the cilantro. Let sit for 30 minutes.
Heat the grill over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook on each side for 5-7 minutes. When you go to flip, the chicken should not stick to the grill. If it does, leave it on longer and continue to let it cook.
Cut last lime in quarters to serve with the chicken. Add the rest of the cilantro on top of the cooked chicken, if desired.
