Cilantro Lime Chicken

Cilantro Lime Chicken is super quick recipe that makes the perfect meal for the whole family. I was surprised my kids even liked it!!  The best part is  the chicken is a low Points Plus Value on the Weight Watchers program since the only thing with points is the chicken and the olive oil.  I served ours with rice as a the side and used the left over chicken on my salad the next day!  This chicken would also be great in a sandwich or wrap.
