Thai Inspired Cilantro Chicken

This recipe is truly unique and a welcome departure from the flavors that I’m used to cooking with. I combined a few different recipes that I found online (with my own twist) and it’s definitely a keeper! The chicken works great served over rice or even inside a wrap.  Just be sure not to overcook the chicken breast as that makes it really dry and chewy.  

Thai Inspired Cilantro Chicken

2 skinless/boneless chicken breast halves
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1-2 Thai green chilies, minced
1 tbsp fresh lime juice 
1 tbsp Asian fish sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil


  1. Cut the chicken into equal sized cubes.
  2. Place everything except for the chicken in a food processor (or chopper) and blend until smooth.
  3. Marinate the chicken in the blended ingredients for at least half an hour (in the refrigerator).
  4. Heat your grill/griddle or oven to a high setting and cook one side completely before flipping the pieces over. Cook until it’s no longer pink in the center and then let rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
