Marinated Chicken Thighs

Updated: Wednesday, February 5 2014, 03:50 PM EST
2.5 to 3 lbs. Boneless skinless chicken thighs
Box of Fruttare Lime fruit bars from the freezer section
2 Tbls Onion powder
3 tsp Garlic powder        
1 tsp Ground cumin        
1 tsp Ground coriander    
½ tsp Chili power         
1 Tbls Kosher salt        
¼ tsp Ground Pepper        
Cayenne or Red pepper flakes (optional) for your preferred heat level
1 bunch    Chopped Cilantro Cleaned and rinsed of debris - Chopped fine
Juice of 2 fresh squeezed limes.

Chicken thighs should be cleaned and trimmed of excess fat. Fruit bars thawed into a mixing bowl. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until incorporated. Add in the chicken thighs and toss with the marinade until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook 1–4 hours. If marinating over night add into the marinade 1 cup of olive oil or any oil preferred by you. This helps prevent the product from becoming over developed. The dish can be broiled, sautéed, baked or grilled. Be sure to turn/ rotate the meat as it cooks to avoid over carmelization of the sugar found in this recipe.
