FIESTA LIME CHICKEN (Applebee's Copycat Recipe) is our favorite easy grilled Summer meal! This Lime Chicken is served on a bed of Mexican rice and topped with lime ranch, pico de gallo, and tortilla strips. I order this Fiesta Lime Chicken Recipe at Applebee's every single time, and now you can make it at home! It's even better homemade, trust me.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- seasoning salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup ranch dressing
- 1/4 cup greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
- 1 clove garlic
- 4 slices Borden Colby & Monterrey Jack Cheese
- Pico de Gallo fresh cilantro, and tortilla strips for garnish
- Mexican Rice for serving
Heat grill to 400F
Brush each chicken breast with olive oil and then sprinkle with seasoning salt (I like Lowry's) and pepper to taste.
Grill for approximately 10 minutes per side or until chicken is fully cooked through and no longer pink. Set aside.
While chicken is cooking combine the ranch, yogurt, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic in a blender and blend until fully combined and smooth. Set aside.
Place 1 tablespoon of the ranch mixture on each chicken breast and then top with a slice of cheese. The cheese should melt down onto the chicken, but to make it extra creamy pop it back on the grill for a minute or two until its melted to your liking.
Top each breast with fresh pico de gallo, cilantro, and tortilla strips. Serve with Mexican Rice for extra flavor.
