It’s incredibly simple, it’s packed with flavor, it’s made with fresh, healthy ingredients and it can even be made into a freezer meal. It’s also Paleo, Whole30 and Gluten Free approved. Garlic Lime Chicken for the win!!!!
The really cool part about this Garlic Lime Chicken is that the possibilities on how to cook it and what to do with it are endless…
You can throw it in a slow cooker, you can grill it, you can bake it in the oven, sauté it over a skillet, put it in a pressure cooker. You can make kabobs, you can shred it, you can put it on a salad, put it in fajitas, throw it in a sweet potato, bake it in a bell pepper, stuff it in a zucchini….oh the possibilities!
What can I say? This Garlic Lime Chicken recipe a weekly staple and I love coming up with new ways to use it! We’ve tried all the possibilities I just mentioned (and many more!) and can testify that they’ve all been incredibly delicious. I hope you enjoy this easy recipe as much as we do!

Thank you for giving me some cooking inspiration! With the heat and a crazy schedule I have not been in the mood to cook! This is my kind of recipe…easy and versatile! I’m going to make it on Sunday in the slow cooker.
I’m so happy to see a new recipe from you! As soon as I saw it, I had to make it. Many of your recipes are family favorites and I knew I would love this, too. It’s another winner with the family! It’s going in our rotation. Thanks for all you do, Kelly! God bless.
Doing this one for sure.
Sounds yummy….gonna give it a try! Thank you Kelly
We love it! Hope you do, too!
The picture shows skewered chicken. Did you cut the chicken breasts lengthwise or use chicken tenderloins?
Grilled tenderloins, but you could do either!
Can you do this with thighs? If so how much time in pressure cooker do you think?
Thighs are great with this recipe! I’ve had luck in the past doing 15 minutes in my pressure cooker for chicken thighs and letting the natural pressure release itself.
