CRISPY CILANTRO LIME CHICKEN THIGHS – Bestrecipe005



INGREDIENTS

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (Juice of 2
    limes)
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon red chili (or pepper) flakes
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 6 bone-in skin-on (or off) chicken thighs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro leaves to serve
  • Lime slices or wedges to serve

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a medium-sized shallow bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons
    olive oil together with the lime juice, chopped cilantro, chili flakes, garlic,
    sugar and cumin. Add the chicken thighs to the marinade and toss to evenly
    coat. Cover and refrigerate thighs for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat the remaining one tablespoon of oil in a non stick pan
    or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the thighs along with any
    marinade left over in the bowl, and sear chicken — skin-side down — for 4
    minutes on each side until golden and crispy (chicken will not be fully
    cooked).
  4. Transfer to preheated oven and bake until the chicken is
    cooked through (about 15-20 minutes).
  5. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves and lime slices or
    wedges.
  6. Serve over steamed rice or cauliflower rice, and drizzle
    with the pan juices.
