Instructions

  • Place the chicken breast in a bowl with the lime juice, cumin, smoked paprika and olive oil and allow to marinate for 2 to 4 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Put the chicken and marinade in a baking dish and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool before cutting into bite-sized pieces.
