Baked Mustard Lime Chicken

What do you do when you find yourself with a bunch of extra cilantro?  For me, I usually make something Mexican.  But what if you’re not in the mood for that type of cuisine?

Well…you can make this.

Delicious, easy (definite weeknight dish!) and healthy, too.  Oh, and did I forget to mention make ahead…my latest obsession?  Yeah, that too.

I think this would be great on the grill too!

Baked Mustard Lime Chicken
from Elana’s Pantry

1 pound skinless boneless chicken breast
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Combine all ingredients except chicken in a food processor.  Pulse until well combined.

Place chicken in a baking dish, pour marinade on top and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes (can be several hours).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for about 20 minutes, uncovered.  Serve with extra sauce spooned on top.
