Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I’ve been following the Keto diet for over a year now and have been trying to get my family more on board by making recipes they can enjoy also. This Keto Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe was a great start of new recipes make for the new year. The combination of cilantro and lime adds a bit of flavor to plain chicken that’s not over powering. Serve it over cauliflower rice for the perfect keto dish!
