Servings: 4


  • Citrus juicer
  • Zester
  • 9x13” glass or ceramic baking dish


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of any excess fat (about four breasts)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • juice and zest of three limes
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp melted soy-free Earth Balance


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides, then place them in a lightly oiled baking dish (I used spray olive oil).
  • Place lime juice and zest, garlic, coconut aminos and melted soy-free Earth balance in a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Pour the mixture all over the chicken and turn the breasts so they’re well coated on all sides.
  • Allow to marinate for at least 20 minutes or up to 8 hours.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F.
