Citrus Cilantro Chicken

Writer and Photographer Kyndra Kelly

This one pan chicken dish is refreshing and full of flavor. I love how the sauce bakes with the chicken and becomes a sticky glaze. It’s a yummy, quick dish for any night of the week!


6 chicken thighs or breasts


4 limes, juiced

2 small lemons, juiced

1 orange, juiced

1/4 c. avocado oil (or olive oil)

1 tbsp. brown sugar

3 cloves minced garlic

1 tsp. red chile flakes

3–4 dashes hot sauce (like Cholula)

1/4 c. chopped cilantro

*optional 1 tsp. cumin


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all sauce ingredients. Whisk well until all ingredients are combined.

In a nonstick skillet, brown both sides of the chicken. Pour sauce over chicken and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Bake in oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until chicken is done. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve. Chef’s Note: This is great served over rice, a salad, or just on its own!
