There are lots of ways to make chicken – but if you’ve ever had a key lime or citrus flavored chicken, you know how good the combination of chicken and citrus is. This particular recipe takes that combination and goes one step further which adds an unexpected spiciness to the overall taste. I really like spicy foods so that was a real plus for me.


Here is my recipe.


  • 3 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Thai Chile Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Swerve Sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon Chipotle peppers, ground
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs



1. Add the olive oil, lime juice, cumin and coriander to a frying pan.

2. Heat the frying pan on medium high, stirring to combine the ingredients, until the cumin and coriander seeds are toasted and fragrant.


3. Add the Swerve Sweetener, salt, chipotle pepper, garlic and cilantro to the frying pan. Stir until the ingredients are well combined.

4. Lay the chicken pieces on top of the spice and oil mixture.


5. Cook for 1o minutes, then turn the chicken pieces over.

6. Cook for an additional 10 minutes, then remove from the heat.

7. Place the chicken pieces in a baking dish, cover and cook on 350 degrees F for approximately 30 minutes until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees.

8. Remove the chicken from the oven, cover the pan with a foil tent and let it sit for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle additional cilantro on top of the chicken right before serving it if desired.
