Chili Lime Chicken Thighs can be used in multiple different meals – which I love! This time I paired them with rice and a side salad and it was delicious. I’ve used them in tacos, enchilada casserole, burrito bowls, burritos, chopped up in my eggs – the possibilities are endless.

Seasoned to perfection with fresh lime, this is some of the best chicken I’ve made. We’ve been prepping this for lunches and dinners recently and I can’t get enough of it.

One thing I hate is dry chicken and this is far from that. If you seem to always be left with dry chicken, thighs are a great way to start out or practice. It’s hard to overcook them and be dry. That’s what makes cooking them so easy! Plus, I just love chicken thighs in general.
