Saucy Chicken with Limes

Chicken is a common ingredient in clean keto recipes AND it can get boring some times am I right? This recipe not only helped me to spice up my chicken, but it was also honestly the best chicken I had ever tasted. Maybe that was because of how it was cooked, or the spices, but one thing is for sure...I will be making this one A LOT!

  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 whole skin on chicken breast
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 limes, halved

  1. Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees F and place a 10 inch cast iron skillet into the oven.
  2.  Take another cast iron skillet that is the same size or smaller. Tear off a piece of tin foil that will cover the bottom of that pan and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl mix cumin, turmeric, paprika, and salt.
  4. Season both sides of chicken with salt and then with all of the spice rub that you just made.
  5. Remove the cast iron skillet from the oven and set it over high heat.
  6. Add the oil to the skillet and then lay the chicken in the pan skin side down.
  7. Use a spatula to firmly press chicken against the surface.
  8. Add one lime cut in half to the pan placing face down.
  9. Cook until the skin starts to brown (about 2-3 minutes).
  10. Transfer the skillet to the oven, lay the tin foil over chicken and then weight with the second pan. Cook for 10 minutes.
  11. Remove the pan from the oven and turn over the chicken; cook the second side in residual heat for 1 minute.
  12. Squeeze the juice from the cooked limes into the pan and transfer chicken and pan juices to a plate. Serve with remaining lime halves.
