Sweet Lime and Curry Chicken Thighs, dinner # 3 from frugal chicken thighs!

You know those times when you want (and need!) a quick and easy dinner that doesn't taste like the last quick and easy dinner? Yes, they happen here too! Try another of our favorites, Sweet Lime and Curry Chicken Thighs. Another great recipe made with skinless boneless chicken thighs to the rescue...


This is perfect for those times when you really don't know what to make for dinner, yet thinking ahead you had already thawed some chicken thighs.....they say that necessity is the mother of invention! And while all that is true, Sweet Lime and Curry Chicken Thighs also happen to be delicious. 

Chicken thighs are my go-to ingredient for a quick and easy dinner. They can be baked as the recipe indicates, or grilled outdoors. Grilling outside automatically makes making dinner easier. With one cooking inside and one cooking outside together, you cut the work in half. 

If you find you do not have fresh lime in the fruit bowl, bottled lime juice will also work. For those times you want to grill outdoors, combine all ingredients in a large covered bowl or freezer bag (my favorite) and let marinate for 8 hours or overnight. The change from baking to outdoor grilling also works well for another delicious favorite, Curry Maple Dijon Chicken Thighs.  Simply grill over medium coals or gas flame until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, after a five-minute rest. 

Serve Sweet Lime and Curry Chicken Thighs with a salad, some buttered corn, and fresh fruit, and just like that, dinner is done! As well as any of your own family favorites, this delicious and easy main dish with its tangy flavor goes with just about anything! 

If however, you are looking for something new to serve alongside Sweet Lime and Curry Chicken Thighs, my suggestions are Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potatoes (easy and made in the Instant Pot!) or this dish of Dusty Potatoes, a delicious season and bake potato dish.  

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • lime juice
  • garlic salt
  • pepper
  • chicken thighs
  • sugar
  • curry powder
You will also need the following: 
  • 9X13 baking pan
or:
  • large freezer bag
  • measuring spoons
  • serving platter
Now you are ready to begin!





Sweet Lime and Curry Chicken Thighs

by the seat of my pants!
350-degree oven

6-8 chicken thighs
1 lime - juiced
garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
2 T sugar
1 t curry powder

To bake: Place the chicken thighs into a flat baking pan (9X13), season with garlic salt and fresh ground pepper.

Roll the lime between the palm of your hand and the kitchen counter to soften, I usually roll a lime back and forth 4-6 times, to get the most juice possible. Cut in half, and run it over a citrus juicer. 

Drizzle the juice over the chicken thighs.

Combine the sugar and curry powder, sprinkle evenly over the chicken pieces.

Bake at 350-degrees 45-50 minutes or until done in your oven.

Place chicken pieces on a serving platter, spoon pan sauce evenly over the top.



To grill: Place all ingredients into a large freezer bag, squeeze gently to remove the excess air, secure the top. Massage the bag to distribute the seasonings evenly through the chicken pieces. 

Let marinate for 8 hours or overnight. 

Grill until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees after a 5-minute rest to avoid overcooking. 

Storage options for Sweet Lime and Curry Chicken Thighs. Store cooked chicken for up to three days in the refrigerator. You may freeze, however, expect a loss of flavor upon thawing and using.
