Enjoy This Chipotle Lime Chicken Recipe For Dinner Tonight

Less time in the kitchen means more time enjoying the beautiful summer weather! If you're looking for a flavorful, fuss-free meal to add to your dinner rotation then this Chipotle Lime Chicken is exactly what you need. Luckily, this collagen recipe tastes like a summertime fiesta in every single bite! It's light, fresh, full of flavor and boosted with Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, so it's also helping to support healthier hair, skin, nails and joints.**

The chipotle-lime marinade is so simple to put together while also packing on big flavor. Chipotle sauce, garlic, lime, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil is all you need! I personally love the subtle, smoky kick of heat that the chipotle sauce adds to the chicken especially when combined with that zesty hit of lime! If you prefer a milder spice level, then feel free to substitute tomato paste in place of the chipotle and 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika instead. This is a dish not to be missed! Cook it on the grill or simply in a hot skillet. Serve it with a simple salad or load it into tacos or tortilla and fill them up with all of the trimmings. However you choose to do it, I guarantee it will fast become a family favorite!
