Try it tonight on the BBQ with your family.

Limes, like their counterparts, lemons, are powerhouses of citrus flavor and plenty of nutrition. Both pack anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories from the flavonoid compounds they contain. Both fruit also have an interesting antibiotic effect, able to protect against disease, infection and ill health. Limes are also loaded with vitamin C, which acts to neutralize free radicals in our bodies as well as supporting a strong immune system. Overall, it doesn’t get much better if you are seeking a food that is both delicious and does wonder for your health.

Cilantro, when used in plant form, is a sharp green, fresh tasting herb that has hints of citrus and sage. As a seed, called coriander, the flavors mellow with the taste predominantly citrus. This herb has tremendous health value including support for lowering cholesterol, control of blood sugar levels and neutralizing free radicals. Together these two ingredients will make your chicken dinner good and good for you. These two ingredients are marinated with the chicken for a few hours in order to allow them to permeate the meat and to help tenderize them for the grill. Serve this dish with rice on the side, sprinkled with chopped cilantro and a squirt of lime. Sweet baby carrots could accompany this dish to soften and round out the flavors. Enjoy it tonight.
