Would I be able to USE BONE-IN CHICKEN?

I don’t recommend bone-in chicken for this fast skillet strategy, since bone-in chicken takes more time to cook through. All things being equal, see my Cilantro Lime Chicken Drumsticks recipe (you can utilize drumsticks or thighs), which is heated on the stove.

Chicken thighs or breasts?

I involved bone-in, skin-on thighs in this chicken recipe, however, you can utilize skinless and boneless chicken bosoms assuming that you like them. The cooking time will change somewhat, contingent upon the size and thickness of your chicken bosoms. Chicken in every case should be cooked to an inward temperature of 165 degrees F.

  • Nourishment realities do exclude rice.
  • Utilize lean chicken bosoms. Assuming you lean toward utilizing boneless thighs that will function too.
  • Change out the protein, attempt shrimp or salmon chomps.
  • Oil: utilize any oil you have accessible.
  • For those that would rather avoid cilantro, use parsley.
  • Serve these chicken chomps with cooked veggies, rice, quinoa, pasta, or potatoes.
