It’s perfectly sweet, spicy and zesty with juicy chicken breasts marinated and cooked in olive oil combined with crushed coriander seeds, grated lime zest, paprika, muscovado sugar, lime juice, garlic and fresh red chilis. Have I forgotten anything? Keep it low carb and serve it with salad and salsa!
