  • 5-6 chicken breasts {no bones}
  • 3 limes juice { and the zest of one of them}
  • ¼ cup of Olive oil
  • 2 garlic gloves {smashed}
  • 2-3 tbsp of chopped cilantro
  • Salt
  • Mixed pepper
  • ¼ Cup white wine {for kitchen}


  • In a medium-big bowl mix all the ingredients except for the chicken.
  • Mix all ingredients well and start adding in one breast at a time and spread the mixture all over it. Make sure all the chicken breasts are well spread.
  • Seal the bowl with plastic wrap and put in the fridge. Best results over night but if you want to cook it the same day then I recommend at least leaving it for a couple hours.
  • To cook, use a large pan and spread a bit of olive oil and wait until really hot over high heat. Place the chicken breast all over the pan but don’t let them pile. Each piece should have its space. I had to use 2 pans LOL
  • Let it get golden and turn over and let it get golden even a bit crispy outside. This helps to seal the chicken and keep inside moist.
  • When it’s golden both sides the add in the rest of the cilantro lime mixture and the white wine.
  • This probably will create a lot of steam so open the windows LOL. Take it to a simmer with the put lid on the pan until is totally cooked.
  • Serve with veggies and potatoes or white rice and enjoy!!!
