Margarita Chicken

8 protein Servings/ 4 Portions


  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • juice of 1 lime
  • ½ Tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 oz each)
  • 1 cup shredded reduced fat Pepper Jack cheese.


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken all over with cumin, salt and pepper and sear in the hot pan for 3–4 minutes on the first side, until a nice crust develops, then flip. Cook for another 3–4 minutes, top with the cheese and place in the oven. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is fully melted and bubbling, no more than 5 minutes.
