Fiesta Lime Chicken is like a party in your mouth. So flavorful and cheesy, this is a chicken dish to remember!

Fiesta lime chicken topped with cilantro, onions and peppers in a cast iron skillet

I am all about mouthfuls of flavor. In our house, we love spicy. We love flavor. And,  of course, who doesn’t love cheese? This dish has it all. It’s all dressed up and ready to party. That fresh pico de gallo on top not only makes it look pretty, it also adds a done of fresh flavor. This chicken is perfect for warm weather.

In this recipe I have you cooking in a skillet it on the stove, but his chicken recipe can easily be made outdoors on the grill. Just toss it on a well oiled grill over medium high heat, close the lid, and let it cook for about 4-5 minutes per side (depending on thickness). Then sauce it up, smother it in cheese, turn off the heat, close the lid and let that cheese get all melty.
