Lime and Basil Chicken

Lime and Basil Chicken


  • 1 tbsp olive oil (and one additional tbsp for cooking)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup chopped basil
  • 1 tbsp scallions (green end only)
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders


Combine all ingredients in a flat dish and add chicken.  Marinate for at least one hour (if possible, marinate overnight to allow flavors to absorb into the chicken).

When ready to cook, add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large frying pan and heat on medium.  Transfer marinade and chicken mixture to the frying pan and cook until chicken is heated all the way through.  If you were only able to marinate for 1 hour, I would recommend lowering the heat and covering the pan for a few minutes at the end of cooking to allow flavors cook together.

Serve with veggies and rice for a perfect weeknight meal!
