What’s For Dinner? Garlic Lime Chicken!

We’ve gotten so much mileage out of this recipe, and we’re sure you will too! You can use this marinade on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and grill them as part of a full meal. Or, marinate chopped chicken pieces and use them in tacos, on nachos, or for kebabs.

Why We Love It

This recipe packs a ton of flavour without adding fat and calories. It’s also fresh and light – perfect for summertime barbeques!

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (dried or fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon minced onion (dried or fresh)
  • ¾ teaspoon cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Meat of your choice (we recommend boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chopped chicken pieces)

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients except meat in large plastic container or freezer bag.
  2. Add meat and shake to coat.
  3. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  4. Cook meat as normal.

Tips

For added flavour, marinate the meat for a longer period of time.

Is Bud Light Gluten Free?

Over the past few weeks, I have heard a strange rumor from several different people and sites that Bud Light is gluten-free. It’s not. Anheuser-Busch does make a gluten-free beer called Redbridge (which I reviewed here) but it’s not available in Canada.

Some gluten-free beers that are available here in Nova Scotia include:

Remember: when it comes to beers, if the label doesn’t say gluten-free, that probably means it’s barley-based and full of gluten!

Road Tripping in Search of Gluten-Free Beer!


Michael and I just got back from a short road trip down through Maine. I love outlet shopping and seeing what kind of gluten-free goodies I can find at grocery and liquor stores. I tried three new gluten-free beers in four days! Unfortunately, none of these are currently available in Canada, so I think it’s time to do some lobbying.

Giving the Foggy Goggle Another Try

One of our earliest reviews was of The Foggy Goggle on Argyle Street in downtown Halifax. Our experience was so bad that I didn’t even get to eat. Michael and I were both convinced that the problem was with the server, but with so many great gluten-free options around town, it took over two years before I was willing to give it another shot.

Since last fall, however, I’ve been back to the Goggle… Read more…

Pacific Naturals Comes to Canada!

Last fall, I posted gluten-free alternatives for soups and sauces. I knew about Pacific Natural Foods’ amazing options, but since they hadn’t come to Canada yet, I focused on options that you can make at home, since they give you so much more control over what you’re eating.

Here we are six months later, and I’m happy to announce that… Read more…
