Dinner help using lime and chicken
 
HELP! I have leftover lime and chicken and the chicken needs to be cooked by tomorrow BUT I think today would be better because ds has a soccer game tomorrow and I don't have anything tonight.

Requirements:

Use up my limes and my chicken.

DD doesn't eat meat so it has to be where the chicken part can be separate. I could possible grab some shrimps.

I have to stop by the grocery store after work today but I want the list to be short and only hit the outer edges (produce, diary) I dont want to be hunting down aisle for ingredietns that I dont know where they are.

I do have both rice and pasta on hand. Id like to add the veggies in. I only have salad stuff and carrots at home but am willing to grab anything in the produce area since I am there anyway.

Not complicated. I have to run another errand after dinner and dont have the energy for a new complictated dish. Also dd needs to leave for practice so something quick-ish so we can eat early-ish. So no marinating I dont think. By the time I get home from grocery I need to start prepping.

I tried allrecipes but nothing good came up. Any ideas?

HELP and TIA!

I'm assuming chicken breast? You could easily do a riff on meuniere (lemon-butter) chicken but sub cilantro and lime for lemon and parsley. Added bonus - shrimp would work well with the same sauce.

Steamed broccoli goes well. Angel hair pasta (riced cauli, zucchini pasta, or real rice, etc.) on the side.

I might use that chili-lime one as the base for my taco meat.

Yes, chicken breasts.

Thank you all - I think Im going to use that first one as the base for the chicken into my tacos.

My favorite thing to do with lemons and limes is Taziki rice. So amazing! :yum The recipe calls for lemons, but I use limes when I have those. Either way is great!

I think you could use any kind with it. I ran out of basmati a few weeks ago, and made it with minute rice instead.

Good to know. The Shrimp turned out A-MAZ-ING. Ill have to do it again with shrimp tacos. Thanks all! I am a DYT 3/2 so feeling indecisive is painful for me.
