Citrus Chicken

It's cold and rainy here and since the warm weather just wont come fast enough I decided to bring a little summer flavor in for dinner. This chicken was tasty, moist and had lots of flavor. It was also really easy to make.

Juice from one whole orange-or 1/4 cup
Juice from one whole lime
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 Tablespoon thyme
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 lb. organic boneless chicken breasts
1 Tablespoon olive oil

Combine orange juice, lime juice, orange rind, thyme, garlic and salt and whisk together.
Pour half the mixture into a zip loc baggie, add the chicken to the bag and let marinate for about 5 minutes.Whisk the olive oil into remaining juice mixture.
Heat a non stick skillet. I used cooking spray to coat the skillet and cooked the chicken (marinade disgarded) over medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side. Then add some marinade to the pan and cook an additional 4 minutes on each side on low with a lid on the skillet.Once chicken reaches 155º in the thickest part I remove it from the skillet.
*Chicken is recommended to be cooked until 165º
Place chicken on a bed of lettuce and drizzle remaining marinade over.Enjoy!
More from my paleo kitchen soon!
