This is my 5 Ingredient Crispy Lime Chicken that’s made with a very special and secret ingredient called Tajín. Tajín is a chilli lime seasoning that is absolutely incredible on pretty much anything and everything. It takes this chicken recipe to a whole new level and I hope you give it a try. You can find Tajín online or your local grocery stores, it’s a staple in my house. This recipe is perfect for lunch or dinner and even meal prep. It only takes a few minutes of your time and I know it will be your new favourite way to make chicken.
5 Ingredient Crispy Lime Chicken
- 6 skin on bone in, chicken thighs — or any cut of chicken
- drizzle of olive oil
- pinch of salt and pepper
- ¼ teaspoon of paprika
- Tajín seasoning to taste
- In a baking dish add all of the ingredients on the chicken, season and massage it well with clean hands and and bake uncovered at 400F for 45-60 min.
- I like to put the top broiler on for a minute or 2 at the very end to crisp up the top but please keep an eye on it as it can burn quickly.
- Enjoy it on rice, salad, with veggies, pulled apart on tacos or any way you like.
About to make this tonight. Can you do this in the air fryer?
You absolutely can but take a look at the air fryer manual that you have because every air fryer is a little bit different so check for chicken thighs or the cut of chicken you are using for the time and temperature
