Cilantro And Lime Chicken Recipe.

Assuming you’re not one of the poor unfortunate souls who tastes it as “soapy” (which is actually a genetic difference and not something any of us can change), cilantro is a great, fresh-tasting way to pep up some roast chicken. Add some lime juice and chili flakes for even more zing, and garnish with (you guessed it) more cilantro for an easy but flavorful meal.
