Ginger Lime Chicken

This was a HUGE hit at my house……I may have done a happy dance when two of my four kids asked for a second serving!


3 tbsp lime juice

4 tbsp soy sauce (I use gluten-free tamari, you could also use coconut aminos)

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp minced garlic

1-2 tbsp honey

1/2 tsp ground ginger (more to taste)

1-2 tsp onion powder

Mix all ingredients together in small bowl and set aside.


2 tbsp coconut oil

1-2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces (I used 2 pounds for my family of 6)

Heat oil in large skillet.  Add chicken and cook until browned on all sides and almost cooked through.

Add sauce, reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Top with sliced green onions, sesame seeds or some slivered almonds.

I think next time I’ll serve with some cauli-rice, or add some broccoli florets to the mix.
